The Bruce Grey Food Charter

A food charter is a statement of values and principles to guide a community’s food policy. All community members have been invited to participate in the Charter`s creation since we are all stakeholders in the production, processing, consumption, and disposal of food. Community leaders can use a charter to define the food, water, and agriculture goals for Grey Bruce and guide decision-making.

The Bruce Grey Food Charter  is a commitment to work together to build a vibrant, sustainable, food secure community. With community participation, a sustainable local food system will prioritize health, social justice, education, economic development, the environment, and culture.


We would like to invite all community members and organizations to endorse the Charter. Please review the Bruce Grey Food Charter and complete the endorsement form. Please consider while reading the charter how you or your organization could support the advancement of the Charter’s values in our community.
