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.
If you have any questions, please contact Carol Haberman by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 519-753-4937 ext 241
We believe that a strong local food system must include everyone, be healthy, fair, and sustainable.

Recognizing that healthy food contributes to physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
Fairness and Dignity for All
The right to safe, healthy, culturally acceptable, and affordable food for all.
Accessing healthy food with dignity.
Local Food Production
Supporting local farmers and local food processing companies in an economically and environmentallysustainable manner, including land use protection.
Ensuring local farming and food production continues to be a way of life for future generations.
Protecting water, soil, agricultural land, and ecosystems using environmentally sustainable farming methods.
Decreasing the amount of food waste throughout the food system.
Education and Skills
Having the knowledge, skills, and confidence to select, grow, and prepare foods in a way that supports overall well-being.
