Kamloops Food Policy Council is excited to be launching Food & the City, a blog post series to explore a number of deeper civic discussions leading up to the municipal election. Based on the idea that food is a lever for transformative change, we are planning to include topics such as affordable housing, disaster readiness, regional agriculture, transportation, disability justice, mental health, defunding/detasking the police, mutual aid and more. Our first post, on housing development and urban sprawl is available here: Growth and Sustainability for a Food Secure Kamloops.
