Foodprint Toronto was the second in a series of international conversations about food and the city. With the Toronto Board of Health having just formally adopted a new city-wide food strategy, the timing was perfect for a truly cross-disciplinary discussion that explored the past, present, and future of food and the city. From the fight for street food to the transportation infrastructure of the Ontario Food Terminal, and from the evolution of school meals to the challenge of scaling up urban agriculture, panelists explored the forces that shape Toronto’s food and speculate on how to feed Toronto in the future.

For our first panel, Zoning Diet, we asked Spacing Magazine Arts and Books Editor, Jessica Duffin Wolfe, Barbara Emanuel, Senior Policy Adviser at the Toronto Board of Health, Pat Pessotto, Vice-President of Merchandising at Longo's, and architect Lola Sheppard, how zoning, policy, and economics shape Toronto’s food systems.
