More on the National Food Plan submissions, due September 30

The Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance is organizing a People’s Food Plan. Food underpins our lives. It determines our health, our economies, our shops, our landscapes, our culture and our future. It is too important to be left to the big corporations. Tell AFTA what are:

1. The core values and principles you think should underpin our food and farming systems?

2. Your main areas of concern?

3. What you think should be the three most important steps that individuals / communities / governments should take in order to address items 1 & 2?

Email your answers to: OR Talk with us at the LFC stall  at Hurstbridge this Sunday. Download this document for more information about the consultative process around the PFP, and this document for an overview of the plan so far.
