Come and join us to celebrate the launch of the JustFOOD Action Plan in Halifax Central Library's Paul O'Regan Hall with free food, a look at our plan, and inspiring speakers.

Meet others who care about the future of food in Halifax and find out how YOU can contribute to a more just and equitable food system for your community!

The JustFOOD Action Plan is the Halifax Regional Municipality's first food strategy. It was developed by the Halifax Food Policy Alliance, a coalition co-chaired by the HRM and the Ecology Action Centre. This action plan was the culmination of years of work and advocacy, representing a step towards greater community food security, reduced food inequities, inclusive economic growth, resilience in the face of climate change, and greater well-being for all residents.

About the organizer

Formed in 2013, the Halifax Food Policy Alliance (HFPA) is a multi-sectoral partnership of individuals and organizations working toward a common vision: Halifax: where no one is hungry and everyone has nutritious food that they enjoy, for generations to come, sustained by local producers. It is co-chaired by HRM and Ecology Action Centre.

We have recently launched the JustFood Action Plan, roadmap designed to enable the Municipality, organizations, communities, and other key actors to work together to build a healthy, just, and sustainable food system for the Halifax region. This plan follows 6 key principles: (1) governance, (2) social and economic equity, (3) food production, (4) food supply, processing, and distribution, (5) health, wellness, and resilience, (6) food waste
