The Alex Food Centre and the Calgary Food System Alliance teamed up to facilitate a consultation on the Food Policy for Canada. About 20 community members were in attendance and provided input on the Federal Government's four themes:
1. increasing access to affordable food
2. improving health and food safety
3. conserving our soil, water, and air
4. growing more high-quality food.
Community members had lots to say about these important topics! Notes from the evening will be shared with the Federal Government.
There was also discussion about advocacy around food with the upcoming municipal election. Stay tuned for more information on this.
