The Ontario Food and Nutrition Strategy was developed in collaboration and consultation with over 200 individuals and groups, including OHEA, representing agriculture, food, health, First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities, and organizations from sectors spanning not-for-profit, public health, academia and government.
The OFNS highlights 25 priority action areas within 3 strategic directions; healthy food access, food literacy and skills, and healthy food systems. It is a blueprint for a coordinated approach to food policy development and identifies, clear, specific policy options that can support current initiatives and inform future health policy directions.

A special thank you to Mary Carver, P.H.Ec., for representing OHEA at the table!
