With community, university and government partners, we are embarking on research and action that helps create the conditions for healthy, vibrant communities in Nova Scotia and beyond that are self-reliant and socially just. Over a decade ago, the persistence and injustice of food insecurity in Nova Scotia catalyzed a partnership among the Nova Scotia Nutrition Coun­cil, the Atlantic Health Promotion Research Centre, and Nova Scotia Family Resource Centres and Projects, resulting in the Nova Scotia Participatory Food Costing Projects. In 2006, the collaboration expanded to launch the Nova Scotia Food Security Network and additional participatory research projects and activities. FoodARC (Food Action Research Centre) emerged in 2012 to replace the Participatory Action Research and Training Centre on Food Security as the latest step in the evolution of many deep, cross-sectoral relationships and significant research activities working to better understand and build food security in Nova Scotia and beyond.
FoodARC wants to continue to work with local, regional, national and international partners to strengthen relationships, share resources and knowledge, and work together across disciplines as a network of activists and researchers to create social justice, healthy, and vibrant communities.
Associated with the Department of Applied Human Nutrition, FoodARC continues the strong Mount tradition of research and community-engaged scholarship in supporting social responsibility, the advancement of women, and preparing students for global citizenship.

Leadership is a nebulous, mysterious, misunderstood element of an organization’s success.  But if we can re-frame successful leadership as a way to create social change, then perhaps there is something to be gained for social entrepreneurs.

What really is leadership?  What can it do and how does it function effectively to help a company or organization achieve its goals?  Many people are familiar with Jim Collins’ landmark book on the most successful American companies Good to Great. The Level 5 leader is a humble one that has “ferocious resolve, an almost stoic determination to do whatever needs to be done to make the company great.”  This leader moves beyond simply managing people and projects, and even beyond getting people behind a common vision, to ensuring that the group, organization, or company becomes exceptional.

For example, a mayor facing rising city crime rates cannot simply demand that crime go down.  Rather, a skilled mayor would analyze the problem and help the entire community (homeowners, business owners, police, schools) work together to create a new solution to the problem, which would, no doubt, involve changes in behaviors, attitudes and habits. Social Velocity helps nonprofits grow their programs, bring more money in the door, and use resources more effectively.
