Have you seen it or used it? Did foodcoreLGL miss something?
foodcoreLGL keeps an online Food Inventory, a list of the food and nutrition-related programs, organizations and businesses in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark. The group wants to know if you’ve used it and also what might be missing. The inventory is divided into five sections:
- Growing and Gathering Food
- Preparing and Eating Food
- Buying Food
- Help for Getting Food
- Sustaining our Future
These sections represent the stages of the local food system from seed to compost. “When we talk about the food system,” says Marie Traynor, Public Health Nutritionist, “we mean everything and everybody that’s involved from seeds to growing, processing, acquiring, transporting, distributing, selling, preparing, eating and disposing of food.” The inventory also takes in consideration the principles of the Food Charter for United Counties of Leeds and Grenville and Lanark County.
foodcoreLGL has just completed a check of existing links and contacts but the group still needs to know what might be missing and if people have used the inventory for work or home. Please evaluate it by filling out the short survey linked from the home page at www.foodcoreLGL.ca. Many thanks in advance from foodcoreLGL a coalition of food activists and organizations who work to take practical steps to realize the vision of the Food Charter.
