Food Policy Encounters of a Third Kind: How the Toronto Food Policy Council Socializes for Sustain-ability

Abstract:

Reviewing the development of key Food Policy Councils, including the Toronto Food Policy Council, the social importance of these sustainability and change-making bodies is clarified, this article examines the importance of these initiatives in Toronto and elsewhere. Food Policy Councils are a crucial tool for citizens striving to shape food systems. They empower people to connect the dots and build up social and problem-solving skills that make sustainable food security happen.
