Group Working On Food Charter For Huron County
The Huron Food Action Network is working on a Food Charter for Huron County.
Spokesperson Joan Brady describes a food charter as a ‘vision’, and explains once that vision is in place they can proceed with some of actions and policies they would need to make that a reality.
Brady says part of their charter would also involved celebrating some of the successes regarding the promotion of local food that Huron has already enjoyed.
Brady points out they’re in the very early stages of creating the charter and they’re looking for community input at three public meetings; the first is at the Wescast Centre in Wingham on April 22nd; the second at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Goderich on April 24th; and the third at the Exeter Christian Reform Church on April 30th.
All three evening meetings will run from 7:00 to 9:30.
