REVIEW AND LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS ON THE DRAFT STRATEGY.

How we can be more food secure as a community? How can we increase access to locally grown food? How can we improve conditions for local agriculture? How can we ensure those in our community who are in critical need have access to emergency food programs?

These are the questions the City will seek to answer through the creation of a food security strategy. Now under development, Penticton's strategy will provide a guide to achieve community food security in our food systems - growing, harvesting, processing, packaging, transporting, marketing, consumption and disposal - as well as in our households.

To understand more about the food security challenges in Penticton, we need to hear from you. Whether you worry about your next meal or not, your knowledge of the community matters. Please follow this page to learn more about this important topic and the opportunities to participate.

How do I participate?

We've prepared a draft of the strategy based on best practices, community needs and public input. Now it's time for you to review the draft and share your feedback before we take a final version to Council for a decision. Leave your comments in the draft and complete the feedback form below.
