In November, we met to hear what matters to you about food in our community. We have gathered all of that input and are crafting it into a ‘Food Charter‘. We now would like to meet with you again to make sure we’re on the right track. You can find the DRAFT Food Charter here. Please submit feedback by February 8th, 2013 to: info[AT]ediblegardenproject.com
What: Table Matters Followup Session
Where: District of North Vancouver Municipal Hall, 335 West Queens Street
When: Monday February 4th, 630PM-830PM
A little background info:
Food touches every aspect of our lives, from daily meals with our families to trips to the grocery store or community garden in our neighbourhoods and beyond. All of these experiences with food are influenced by policies at all levels (though how is not always visible). We all have values around food that we hold dear.
Your input will be used to refine a food charter that will be brought before North Shore municipalities. Municipalities refer to ‘food charters’ as guiding documents to help guide policy and decisions by keeping food issues important to the community a part of any decision making process.
