Sustainable food systems pioneer and community leader Cathleen Kneen passed away last week. Since the 1960s, Cathleen has been instrumental in establishing and growing several social justice and food activism groups including Food Secure Canada, Just Food, and Ottawa Food Policy Council—just to name a few. Cathleen was also a recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award by Organic Council of Ontario and recognized as a Female Food Hero by Oxfam Canada. Our deepest condolences to Cathleen’s family.
