Headwaters Food Charter Stakeholder Consultations‏

Headwaters Food Charter Stakeholder Consultations

We want your voice!

Headwaters Food and Farming Alliance (HFFA)You are invited to participate in the Headwaters Food and Farming Alliance (HFFA) Food Charter consultations. A Food Charter will define a common vision for a healthy, fair, prosperous and sustainable food system in the Headwaters Region. The Food Charter will include value statements and action steps intended to guide our communities, community organizations and all stakeholders toward a unified vision and plan. Here is a sample Food Charter from a neighbouring community.

HFFA has held several consultations in the past two years and one repeated message was that there is a need to develop a formal charter that is owned, valued and recognized by the community. Once the charter is finalized HFFA will be taking it to Municipal Councils for endorsement, making it a public document for future decision-making and possible funding.

For the consultations, we need individuals that represent any of the following sectors:  health and wellbeing, social services and food access, economic development, environmental responsibility, food production, or culture. Individuals from these sectors are asked to share their perspectives and provide valuable insight into what the food charter should include and what strategic actions need to take place for the Headwaters Food System to thrive.

A total of four community partner consultations will be taking place across the Headwaters region. Due to the importance of these events, we have hired a professional consultant to lead the consultation and a meal will be served for participants. Please sign up for a date and location that works best for your schedule. We look forward to hearing from you.

Consultation #1 Caledon
Wednesday, March 2, 2016 – from 8:30-11:30am
Caledon Town Hall, 6311 Old Church Rd, Caledon, ON
