Letter from the Food Alliance's Rachel Carey
Responses to the National Food Plan issues paper are due at 5pm on Friday 2 September. The issues paper is a large document (over 100 pages), and we’re aware that many public interest groups will find it difficult to respond to the paper within the short timeframe.
The Food Alliance has prepared a brief summary of the issues paper and the background to the National Food Plan to assist public interest groups in responding to the issues paper and in on-going advocacy in relation to the development of the plan.
The Food Alliance plans to co-ordinate some joint advocacy in relation to the development of the National Food Plan and would welcome the involvement of a broad range of public interest groups from multiple sectors, including food, health and the environment.
If you are interested in receiving more information about developments related to the National Food Plan or in being involved in joint advocacy with other public interest groups related to the development of the Plan, please contact myself or Kathy McConell at the Food Alliance.
