Waterloo – The Canadian government is hosting a Food Policy for Canada Summit June 22 and 23 to consult with researchers, food advocates, and community organizations about the development of a National Food Policy.

Their new report, “Food Counts: A Pan-Canadian Sustainable Food Systems Report Card,” brings together 61 existing measures of social, environmental, and economic well-being to examine food systems at the national level.
