Food Summit Declaration 2009

Posted on 29. Apr, 2010 by .


The SFFA Food Declaration sets out the position of the Alliance in calling for a NSW state food policy.

It was developed during 2009 through a series of regional  forums and a Food Summit under the heading : ‘Hungry for change’.

In 2010 SFFA will be using this declaration as an advocacy tool to lobby for the development of a state food policy council.

Four issues were discussed at the pre-summit public forums:

  • access to healthy food — cost, distribution, local outlets
  • planning for healthy food supplies — land use, transport / distribution
  • sustainable agriculture — practices, carbon footprint, organics, soil quality
  • food safety and health — synthetic inputs, new technologies, healthy diet.
