Food Solutions

The Metcalf Foundation in Ontario, Canada has just published five new reports that tackle the deepest issues in food, land, and agricultural justice facing Ontario communities. These reports, collectively titled “Metcalf Food Solutions” were created through intensive research and interviews with stakeholders in the Ontario food system. Together, they contain recommendations for protecting rural and urban land to grow food, building a thriving local food and farming economy, creating jobs and infrastructure, and supporting healthier Ontarians demanding locally-produced food.

The five reports are available in PDF form on the Metcalf website:
