This video looks at the unique rural and urban mix of York Region, and the importance of connecting community members to work together collaboratively to support the local food movement. The York Region Food Charter was developed by a working group of representatives from various networks and organizations. It is a “guiding document for the development of coordinated food-related policies and programs in York Region” that outlines the vision of a sustainable and healthy food system that will benefit the community, the environment and the local economy. The development process involved public consultations through surveys to get a feeling for priority local food issues, projects to be supported by a food charter, and other actions and recommendations that should be addressed. The hope is that this Food Charter will facilitate networks and connections, offer opportunities for economic development and healthier lifestyles, and ensure that healthy and local foods are available to all!
