What is a healthy food system? And why are people hungry?


Back in November I was fortunate to take part in the Waterloo Region Food Summit, organized by the Waterloo Region Food Systems Round Table (which I am a part of).

A lot of people took part in the two day event, sharing their ideas and hopes and energy to improve our food system and create awareness of some of its current problems.  It resulted in a final declaration as a call to action and local people are currently spreading the word and working towards achieving the goals they set out in it.

If you’re interested in getting involved contact the Food System Roundtable and check out the discussion forum which is always full of great information and links to great initiatives.

Aside from planning, meeting, and organizing, part of the lead up to the day involved talking to local people about their struggles with food insecurity, resulting in the excellent Food Summit Story.

What are your priorities for our local food system? And how can we ensure that people do not go without?
