Food for Thought
Throughout Canada and the world, food policy is shifting to ensure that fresh, high-quality food from grocery stores is no longer thrown out, but rather redistributed in meaningful ways that strengthen families and communities. The public at large is increasingly aware of the economic, environmental and ethical injustice of nutritious, costly fresh food going to waste.
The London Food Coalition Inc. is dedicated to creating food prosperity initiatives that assert fresh food as a fundamental right. Fresh food is integral to many different community programs in the city. This initiative provides essential resources for family cooking programs, nutritional and educational programming, camp programs, and healthy meals for children and families. Furthermore, this coalition reduces the costs of food for London organizations.
Our Goals are:
To relieve poverty by gathering and distributing food and other basic supplies to persons of low income.
To educate and increase the public's understanding about reducing food waste by collecting and disseminating information on that topic.
