Niagara Falls Local Food Action Plan

Niagara Falls Local Food Action Plan

Healthy Food Healthy People began with a simple vision of having Niagara Falls residents understand the value of, be able to, and choose to eat healthy foods. Through the work done over the past several years with local leaders and institutions, it became clear that a cohesive plan of action for food access issues in Niagara Falls was needed. The plan that has been formed – through significant resident input and feedback – represents an evolving vision to address food access issues in an effective and meaningful way. Each priority area of the plan reflects the concerns of the Niagara Falls community. The vision is: within each of the four priority areas (Agriculture, Economic Development, Education, Healthy Neighborhoods), residents and organizations will be able to take on what is meaningful to them and tackle that issue with the support of and the the partners and the City of Niagara Falls.
In practice, the Niagara Falls Local Food Action Plan will be a road map for improving the entire local food system in the City of Niagara Falls, from production to consumption. Recommendations may be taken up by organizations or individuals, and will be supported by the Healthy Food Healthy People work group.
