Tasting Food Democracy: A People's Food Policy for Canada--Healthy, Fair, Ecological; Food Secure Canada

Toronto, Ontario & Online
April 8, 2013

5:00-7:00 p.m.
Centre for Social Innovation, Regent Park, 585 Dundas Street East, 3rd Floor

Join us for a conversation about the future of food, and what kind of policies we need to nourish all Canadians. 

Two years ago, Food Secure Canada launched Resetting the Table: A People's Food Policy for Canada.  Together with food leaders across the country, we held kitchen table talks with over 3500 Canadians about policies needed to ensure healthy, safe, sustainable food for all.

Recently, the Canadian food industry, under the auspices of the Conference Board of Canada, has undertaken the development of a National Food Strategy. The latest instalment of this process is the exclusive 2nd Food Summit that will be held in Toronto on April 9 & 10.

We think a worthwhile National Food Policy needs to address hunger, fisheries, Indigenous and labour rights, children, local food, Northern issues and more.  Don't you? In fact, much of our vision of a democratic food governance in Canada is encapsulated in the 10th and final discussion paper of Resetting the Table entitled Food Democracy and Governance.

On April 8th, we'll broaden the conversation about a National Food Policy. We want to ensure that everyone is heard.
