Check out the new Guelph-Wellington Charter for Food Justice! It describes the community’s vision and values for a just and sustainable food system and shines a spotlight on the complex, interconnected and often-invisible barriers inherent in the current food system, and unites a vision for the future.

The Charter aims to connect communities, businesses and governments to invest in a food system where the right to food is upheld and where all people, relationships, economic and ecological systems can flourish.

The Charter was drafted by the Food System Resiliency Table, a network of community members and organizations working together to support just food policy and programming that builds regional resilience, over 2 years of community consultation.

Transforming our food system is one of the most impactful things we can do to create healthy communities, address climate change, and regenerate our natural environment. To build a food system that meets the needs of everyone, we need to understand how white supremacy, colonialism, patriarchy and capitalism have led to deep social inequity and environmental degradation today.
