Macarthur Future Food Forum forwarded the following information:

The ‘Securing Our Food Future’ project through the NSW Environmental Trust has launched its Food Futures Council Resource Kit – a toolkit which provides food-related templates, policies, guidelines and case studies for Councils. It aims to increase their capacity to support local food systems, improve the health of their communities and ‘future proof’ their regions against the rising economic, social and environmental costs associated with our food system.

The resource kit is available at http://rdanorthernrivers.org.au/food-futures-council-resources/.

Additionally, six workshops were held around New South Wales to introduce the resources available, and highlight how they can be used to address region-specific food challenges. Out of these workshops, an online discussion group has been set up which we encourage Council staff to join. It is intended to enable ongoing discussion, resource-sharing and networking between Council staff and can be accessed at http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/foodfuture/.
