Huron Food Action Network
Eco-Ethonomics Inc. and associates are currently working with Huron County to develop a food policy council and food charter across Huron County. The approach has been to connect the skilled and knowledgeable set of leaders across Huron County through a series of community meetings. These meetings have resulted in strong participation in one of Ontario’s most agriculturally rich regions. The group has since elected a Executive Committee, developed a terms of reference and defined five working groups that are engaged in initiating projects to further build a local and sustainable food system in Huron County. Under the administration of Huron Business Development Corporation and the Health Unit, along with the support of Council the group has already developed a seed library, created collaboration with four other counties to develop a multi-regional food hub and prioritized a number of policy initiatives.
