Over the past couple of years over 3500 citizens have come together to discuss what they would like to see in a national food policy. And on Monday, April 18 the People’s Food Policy was officially released.
To see photos from the media release in Ottawa and to read the policy paper and the 10 discussion papers behind it, visit the People’s Food Policy Project. The website also as an election toolkit, if you are looking for ideas as to how to continue to make food policy an election issue. To date, two federal parties (the Green Party and the NDP) have come out in support of the People’s Food Policy.
