Hey Caledon! Help build Healthier Headwaters Food System!

Tell us what you think Caledon!

Working together to build a healthier food system in Headwaters

“Wouldn’t it be great to know your child is buying a nutritious meal at school when there wasn’t enough time to pack a lunch?

Or that the vegetables in the meal at your mother’s long-term care home are entirely locally grown?

Can you imagine a food system that protects prime farmland? Or works to create jobs in the food and farming industry?

All those things would be nice, right? The only trouble is…how do we get there?”

The Headwaters Food and Farming Alliance (HFFA) is looking for your input Caledon! They need to hear from community members on future directions in the food and farming system in Headwaters. And in return, you may win a dinner out on the HFFA.

Fill out the survey today to share your thoughts on a draft food charter and help build a healthier food system in Headwaters. At the end of the survey, you’ll be asked to fill out a ballot and be entered to win a $100 gift card to a fantastic local restaurant!

The survey will close November 5th, 2016 so don’t delay and get your name in the draw to win a dinner out on the HFFA today!

Read the full blog post by WDG Public Health from above to learn more about the food charter and survey.
