About the Policy:
The draft food policy provides a vision and a framework to work towards a more sustainable food system in the City of Melbourne to ensure all residents, workers, students and visitors have sufficient access to healthy, safe and affordable food, now and into the future.
The development of the draft food policy has been informed by background research through the food policy discussion paper and a series of consultation processes including postcard surveys and forums where we collected community views on what food means to you.
The draft food policy identifies five key themes for action, these include:
- Strong, food-secure communities
- Health and wellness for all
- A sustainable and resilient food system
- A vibrant local economy
- A city that celebrates food
Download the draft food policy and the discussion paper from the City of Melbourne website.
The closing date for feedback is 5pm on Friday 13 April 2012.
