Food Strategy Consultation


Today's food system is creating many challenges, including obesity, chronic disease, excess food and packaging waste. Many residents are food insecure, which means they cannot access, afford or prepare nutritious food on a regular basis.

There is also opportunity to better support local producers to embrace and celebrate the foods of our multicultural and indigenous communities and to educate our community on the benefits of a more local and resilient food system.

The City of Ballarat has undertaken a series of consultation workshops, exhibitions and an online survey to inform the development of a Food Strategy.

The draft Good Food For All : Food Strategy 2019-22 has now been developed and will be on exhibition for one month until June 16.

Please take the time to read the background documents to see the feedback to date and the range of work that the City of Ballarat, other health and welfare organisations, educators and the community are already undertaking in this area.
