The Moreland Food System Strategy 2017-2020 sets ambitious goals for creating a just and vibrant food system. Part of this Strategy includes creating a Community Food Hub in Moreland.
Community Food Hubs are places where people can meet together to grow, share, prepare and eat nutritious food. Community Food Hubs are an emerging model to support food security.
Council is committed to working with our community to make nutritious food socially and economically accessible to all. This project explores the feasibility of establishing a community food hub in the north of Moreland which has some of the least food secure communities in the municipality.
Community feedback received so far
Between January and March 2020 we asked our community what a Community Food Hub in Moreland might look like and where it could be located.
We hosted 5 interactive co-design workshops where people contributed ideas to help shape a vision and inform a concept design for a community food hub in the north! We also asked our community to provide us with feedback and ideas by completing an online survey in March.
In the next stage of this project we will consult with targeted stakeholder groups to refine the concept of a new food hub for Moreland.
