Teleconference: Municipal Food Policy in Canada and NL

Date(s) - January 29, 2014 - January 30, 2014
2:00 pm - 2:45 pm

Join Food Secure Canada for this teleconference to learn about approaches to municipal food policy across Canada, and how those approaches can be applied in your community.

In June 2013, a report titled Municipal Food Policy Entrepreneurs: A preliminary analysis of how Canadian cities and regional districts are involved in food system change was released by the Toronto Food Policy Council, Vancouver Food Policy Council, and the Canadian Agri-Food Policy Institute. In a cross-Canada survey, they found that 64 local and regional municipalities are working to improve the food system, using a mix of municipal policies, programs and civil-society interventions.

Joanne Bays, National Manager Farm to Cafeteria Canada and Vancouver Food Policy Council member, will present the results of the report, highlighting the role municipalities can play in advancing local food systems in Newfoundland and Labrador.
