Municipal Food Policy Entrepreneurs: New Report Released | Toronto Food Policy Council

Municipal Food Policy Entrepreneurs: New Report Released | Toronto Food Policy Council: "using a food systems approach to improve health"

"The TFPC is pleased to release a new report today, “Municipal Food Policy Entrepreneurs: A preliminary analysis of how Canadian cities and regional districts are involved in food systems change,” in collaboration with the Vancouver Food Policy Council and the Canadian Agri-Food Policy Institute.

The report documents how over 64 municipal and regional governments across Canada are using a food systems approach to improve health, generate economic development, address environmental sustainability, and engage communities. It is the first scan of municipal and regional food policy development in Canada, and reveals that right across the country communities have launched food charters, food strategies and action plans, and created food policy councils."
