Building a Citizens' Good Food Policy

Notes by Don Kossick

A movement, called Food Charters, is taking place in Canada to build a strategy for good food policy, to mobilize action at the local and regional levels, and to influence public policy. Food Charters is becoming the vehicle for citizens and communities to engage their public institutions to develop a common approach for good food practices in communities.

According to Don Kossick, this movement has arisen due to increasing concerns about food and its origins; consumers are asking questions about how food is produced, processed, and distributed. Kossick concludes that the Food Charter movement is significant, as more individuals and communities seek out alternative means of finding safe, wholesome food supplies, and learn more about how food is produced and distributed.
