Why do we need a Food Strategy?

Leave a comment

Over the past few years, our community has seen a tremendous growth in the interest and investment in our food system. Retailers and restaurants showcase local food options, large institutions incorporate local food in their procurement policies and sign bylaws are being evaluated to help facilitate efforts of local food producers. Furthermore, there are many more opportunities to learn food skills through several organizations and our youth are being exposed to community gardens, compost programs and/or free healthy food options through the school system.

We hope to develop a Greater Sudbury Food Strategy and to continue to engage with the community to work towards an economically viable and ecologically sustainable food system that provides residents with accessible, affordable, nutritious and culturally acceptable food.
