Joey Coleman: Hamilton Community Food Security Stakeholder Advisory Committee for September 4, 2013

Hamilton Community Food Security Stakeholder Advisory Committee for September 4, 2013

Farmers’ Market privatization, Urban Agriculture Policy, and Hamilton Food Strategy are all up for discussion when the City’s food security advisory committee gathers for their September meeting.

With Councillor Brian McHattie pushing food security at Council, this committee is tasked with providing feedback to staff who are preparing a plan for Council’s consideration.

This committee meets at the same time as the citizen engagement meeting. I will not be covering this meeting
