  • Building food connections broadly, with community but also with TPH and other city Divisions <br /> Food Strategy is not a report – ongoing process to identify, leverage and strengthen the conectinos between food and many other issues <br /> Making food visible (food traditionally not what Cities do, but we are trying to align City of Toronto policies, by-laws etc with goals of a health focused food system. <br /> Helping everyone be intentional about food – to see food as part of City mandate <br /> Admin – Board of Health Approved in 2008, Cultivating Food Connections in 2010 <br />
  • “Food Connections” presents a vision of a health-focused food system, in which health becomes the overarching and driving principle. Our food problems show that the current system does not have health as its goal. <br /> A health-focused food system means much more than making safe and nutritious food more available. It would support the social determinants of health. In other words, such a food system would promote social justice, protect the environment, creates local, diverse & green economic development, builds strong communities, foster food-friendly neighbourhoods, empower people with food skills & info, and much more. <br /> PHOTO: <br /> Afri-Can Food Basket at McVean farm in Brampton <br />

  • And in big cities with all our wealth and food availability, we still have many low-income neighbourhoods with little access to healthy, affordable food or a high density of unhealthy food options. This is Lotherton Pathway in west Toronto, a lower income area cut off from food stores, where residents take extreme measures to reduce the 2.5km walk to the nearest discount grocery store. <br />
  • When we talk about food system – we talk in linear way a ”grow it to throw it” but others talk about it in a circular system of activities from production through to waste. We like to think about as a interconnected system – with not only activities but with people and organizations all interacting and interdependent. <br /> Essence of a food strategy – help reorient these connections in favour of a healthier and more sustainable food system. <br /> Food system - Production, processing, distribution, retail, marketing, purchasing, preparation, consumption and disposal. In other words, everything from “grow it to throw it”. <br /> Food system is big and important – Toronto residents and government spends $7 billion annually on food – 1 in 8 jobs directly related to food, Toronto is 2nd largest food distribution hub in North America <br />
