Pye Centre Media Coverage

This article for the Memorial University Gazette, describes the process of establishing the Pye Centre, from its beginnings as the Grand River Farm to its future role in supporting Northern food systems, food security, and food sovereignty, led by the Labrador Institute in partnership with Memorial University, local farmers, representatives from Nunatsiavut, NunatuKavut, the Innu Nation, and key community organizations.

This CBC news article announces the official establishment of the Pye Centre. It celebrates the legacy of Frank and Joyce Pye and the work that they’ve done around food security and food sovereignty in Labrador, and looks toward the future of the Pye Centre as a hub for community engagement, farming and scientific research.

News Articles

In this 2013 article in Modern Farmer, Justin Nobel reports on some of the strategies and solutions that individuals and communities across the North are using to strengthen and support their food systems.

This post on the Young Agrarian’s blog sheds light on the stories and people that the Canadian food system relies on so that we all can eat. In addition to farmers, this includes: Indigenous peoples who were pushed off their land; the migrant workers who work in fields, orchards, and processing plants; and the many individuals who work in grocery stores and restaurants.

This post emphasizes that true food justice requires both acknowledging the complicated and violent histories of food systems in Canada, while upholding and supporting the rights of the people and lands that are integral to food systems today.
