Leslie CampbellPrograms Director (Parental Leave Coverage)
As Director of Programs, Leslie oversees FoodShare's school and community based programs. These programs focus on food literacy education, nutrition, urban agriculture, and community food animation, seeking to improve food access for people and communities currently underserved by the food system.
Leslie has had the privilege to work alongside communities to support food production, and food security programming in a diverse range of contexts in Canada and the US, as well as Indonesia, Thailand, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Ethiopia and Kenya.
In following ongoing conversations about food insecurity in the context of North America, Leslie is heartened by emerging efforts to broaden these conversations to ensure they include the voices and perspectives of those most affected by it, but feels much more work is needed. He is interested in questions of who is at the table, and who isn’t, in conversations about food insecurity.
