Food Partners Alliance of Simcoe County
The Food Partners Alliance (FPA) was established in response to the growing awareness on the part of a broad spectrum of stakeholders, including agricultural, government, environmental, health and educational organizations, that our food system is facing some significant challenges, which if they remain unaddressed could put our food supply at risk. At the same time, there is the recognition that there exists a multitude of exciting opportunities which if seized could offer a full range of economic, community health, and educational benefits.
The Food Partners Alliance of Simcoe County is a multi-sector organization whose primary purpose is to work together and provide leadership to build a sustainable and equitable food system, from research to field, to table.
The FPA works to support the implementation of the Simcoe County Food and Agriculture Charter by raising awareness about local food system issues; building partnerships within the community to support uptake of Charter principles; and tracking and reporting progress on local initiatives that support the Charter.
