  2. 2. Food Secure Canada Food Secure Canada is a Canada-wide alliance of civil society organizations and individuals collaborating to advance dialogue and cooperation for policies and programs that improve food security in Canada and globally.  Zero Hunger  Sustainable Food Systems  Health and Safe Food
  3. 3. The People’s Food Policy 3500 citizens contributed through 250 kitchen table talks from coast to coast to coast
  4. 4. Brief History 2011: Priority #1 of PFP: • National Children and Food Strategy 2012 • First meeting of Children and Food Network June 2013 • First meeting to develop Raising the Bar on Student Food Programs – new and existing members
  5. 5. Raising the Bar on Student Food Programs Our Vision Every student in Canada will have access to a school food program that: • is universal; • is cost-shared (federal, provincial / territorial, municipal, local); • supports existing programs and diverse approaches to student food; • serves good food (healthy as well as local and sustainable as much as possible); and • has a health promotion focus.
  6. 6. The Plan A national dialogue on School Food Programs: 2015 • Let’s make it an election issue! • Communication – one voice, many organizations, people • Goal – at least 250 kitchen table talks / round tables • What we hope to gather: • • • • What is working and not working in your community? (promising practices) What SFP / SNP models exist? What would you do differently if you had more funding? What role could the government play in SFP/SNP?
  7. 7. The Plan Research • What will give us a stronger rationale? What are the gaps? • How do we gather information from the dialogue so that it ‘holds water’? Policy Change • Creating tools / reports for local, provincial, federal advocates • Develop relationships • Capacity building and mobilization
