Local Food Procurement

In 1999, The Environmental Task Force with the City of Toronto issued recommendations to City Council, based on a report from the Toronto Food Policy Council, to increase the amount of local food procured by food service providers within City agencies.

In 2000 this was reiterated in an environmental plan by the Environmental Task Force, Clean, Green and Healthy – A Plan for an Environmentally Sustainable Toronto, where procurement of food within urban areas was also called for in addition to a number of recommendations to foster the local food movement within the City.

In 2011 The Toronto Environment Office issued a Staff Report on Local Food Procurement to the Government Management Committee at the City of Toronto with a general pledge to increase local food procurement within the City in alignment with the goals of the Province.
