Hi Kate, Wodonga Council, in partnership (M.O.U currently being compiled) with Gateway Health (Community Health) and the Wodonga Local Food Network (community action group - cross sector representation) currently has it's Wodonga Food Strategy in draft.
It is scheduled to go up to a Council meeting very soon, so fingers crossed all goes according to plan very soon.
The Strategy has been developed using the North East Food Policy Discussion Paper as the basis for establishing it's Priorities. The Strategy has utilized the Wodonga Local Food Network as a reference group to establish the entire document and the Action Plan.
This has been to date a great outcome, as it has allowed the Food Network to review it's structure, purpose and build on its membership. Now we have a plan... we can attract money to do and act! We have a formal pathway to work with Council to ensure we are part of the picture when working on all things food - small to broad scale.
