2012-2015 Three-Year Action Plan

FOOD SECURITY - Membership and Terms of Reference

Peel Poverty Reduction Strategy launched its Food Security Taskforce earlier this year. It is co-chaired by EcoSource and Caledon Community Services and has representation from residents, food organizations and Peel Public Health. The taskforce is developing a food charter for the region that will express our community’s values and priorities for our food system; this process will include consultation from all stakeholders including food manufacturers. They are also working on building capacity within the food sector - defining food security in Peel, learning from each other and sharing best practices. The task force meets monthly and new members are always welcome.
