The Kamloops Food Policy Council (KFPC), established in 1995, has emphasized public education on food security issues as well as initiating concrete food system projects. The KFPC acts as an umbrella organization, providing an opportunity for project and advocacy groups to co-ordinate their work. Council membership includes people from a wide variety of local groups, bringing together the knowledge and passion about food that we share.
A few examples of programs that we started are:
The council also acts as forum where the experiences and insights derived from these grassroots projects can be framed as policies for adoption by agencies, institutions and governments. One such document is the Kamloops Food Action Plan (pdf: Kamloops_Food_Plan).
