Brant Food Charter

The Brant Food System Coalition, working with Grand River Healthy Communities, has developed a food charter for Brant and Brantford! Now we’re making a charter toolkit with suggestions on how to use the charter every day. 

If you want to see the charter itself you can view it here, but keep in mind that the feedback we’re looking for right now is about the toolkit.
