HEAL Invited to Help Develop a Food Policy Council

Friday, February 28, 2014

Dr Jason Gilliland, Dr Richard Sadler, Michael Clark (MA student) and Malgorzata Milczarek (Project Manager) of the HEAL were invited participants at the London & Middlesex Food Policy Council Forum hosted by the London Community Foundation, the Middlesex-London Health Unit and the City of London.  The purpose of the forum was to bring together a core group of key actors in local food issues -- farmers, food retailers, municipal/provincial policymakers, public health professionals, emergency food providers, researchers, and other stakeholders -- to engage in a conversation about how to form a Food Policy Council for London and Middlesex County.
