Food Strategy Consultation

The City of Ballarat are consulting with the community to inform the development of a Food Strategy.

The current food system is creating many challenges including obesity, chronic disease and 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 for more support of local producers, to embrace and celebrate the foods of our multicultural and indigenous communities and to educate community on the benefits of a more local and resilient food system.

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