Take action … You can help to transform the world one bite at a time.

Consider volunteering with us or your local organization promoting a more sustainable food system.
A proud program of
Affordable Access To Food
We envision a Halton where all residents have access to safe, nutritious and culturally acceptable food that they can afford without compromise.
Sustainable Food System
We are committed to a fair and sustainable food system where local foods are available and promoted, local agricultural lands and farmers are protected and supported, urban agriculture is encouraged, and food has been produced and distributed in an environmentally acceptable way.
We support a food system that upholds people's right to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through sustainable methods. To us, that means that people have the right to define and control their own food and agriculture systems.
We see residents engaged in their community garden. We believe that community gardens play a vital role in building a sustainable food system that promotes food security, food sovereignty and food literacy.
Nutrition and Food Education
We envision a Halton where all people have the knowledge and skills to cultivate and cook their own safe, nutritious and culturally acceptable food.
