Food Policy for Canada

We are excited to see the release of the Federal Government’s “A Food Policy for Canada” on June 17, 2019. The goal of the Policy is to move us towards a Canada where everyone has access to a healthy amount of “safe, nutritious and culturally diverse food”. With particular interest we will follow the $50M Local Food Infrastructure Campaign and how it can provide support to organizations like the GVFB in the food insecurity sector, as well as the National School Food Program, a cause close to our hearts, because “too many children at school are trying to learn on empty stomachs.” Check out Canada’s food policy to find out more.
