Exciting week for food action in Halifax!

On Tuesday, Dec 3rd Halifax Regional Council endorsed the HRM Food Charter in principle and committed to supporting the development of a Food Action Plan with the Halifax Food Policy Alliance (HFPA)!  This initiative is an exciting milestone for working towards a healthy, just, and sustainable food system for HRM.

After the motion was passed unanimously, the Mayor and Council thanked those involved with the work.  Councillor Mancini tweeted this picture of HFPA members in the audience (from left to right Leticia Smillie – HRM; Wesley Petite – EAC; and Heather Monahan & Madeleine Waddington – Public Health, NSHA).
