Food System Strategy
The Moreland community does a range of exciting work in relation to food, including growing at home, social enterprises, community gardens, free food events, food swaps and food festivals.
Council developed the Moreland Food System Strategy to provide the building blocks for the community and Council to advance a sustainable, just and vibrant food system into the future.
The implementation of this strategy seeks opportunities to learn and create a resilient local food system together.
This strategy was based on community input that informed the Seeding Change report (PDF 14Mb) and was launched in September 2017.
The Strategy Action Plan continues to be a working document and will be amended as projects are finalised.
Research on Food Security was undertaken by a Masters of Public Health student from Melbourne University.
The purpose of the research was to produce a background report that collates local evidence about the issue of Food Security in Moreland.
Monitoring and Evaluation Framework
A priority action in the Food System Strategy was to develop measures to track progress against the outcomes we are looking for in the strategy.
A team of dedicated Moreland residents and community group members worked with Council Officers to develop a framework to help us monitor progress and if we need to, adjust the strategy actions to make sure we stay on track to achieve the strategy goals.
