Grey County Council Endorses Bruce Grey Food Charter

At the council meeting of July 7, Grey County Council formally endorsed the Bruce Grey Food Charter. 

Council agreed that “a diverse, sustainable and just food system is integral to the overall health of any community”, recognized that “leaders representing all aspects of food in our community engaged in an extensive process to develop a guiding document” and that the Food Charter “recognizes the impacts of food on physical health, social justice, culture, education, sustainable economic development and the environment”.

Endorsement of the charter implies that in future, council will consult and take into consideration the recommendations in the document before making decisions relating to food security.

The Municipality of Meaford was the first to endorse the charter in May. The Bruce Grey Poverty Task Force continues to solicit endorsements from municipal and community partners across Grey and Bruce Counties.

You can view and download the charter here.
