Health and Food Matters is very excited to have our very own Ian Barrett represent us at the ‘Engagement on A Food Policy for Canada Session.’ This happens today, August 9th, at the Rodd Royalty in Charlottetown, PEI. Health and Food Matters is committed to improving the health of Islanders through healthful whole food nutrition, regular exercise and stress management all in a supportive group environment. This is a great opportunity to share our vision and contribute to the way Canadians will be eating in the future. Here’s more details about the engagement session today.
A Food Policy for Canada – Let’s build it together
On May 29, 2017, Agriculture and Agri-Food Minister Lawrence MacAulay announced the launch of consultations to develop A Food Policy for Canada. Online engagement is open and Canadians are encouraged to share their input to help shape a food policy that will cover the entire food system, from farm to fork. The online survey is available at www.canada.ca/food-policy until July 27, 2017.
Regional Food Policy Sessions will be held across Canada in the months of August and September 2017. We invite you (or a delegate from your organization) to attend the session in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island (PEI), and share your views regarding a vision, guiding principles, and priorities, for A Food Policy for Canada. At this event, we will explore areas related to: increasing access to food; improving health and food safety; conserving our soil, water, and air; and, growing more high quality food.
The Regional Food Policy Session you have been invited to will be held on August 9 at:
Rodd Royalty Hotel
