*UPDATE!* On Thursday July 14th, Council voted for Local Food, again!
On Tuesday June 28th 2011, Toronto's Government Management Committee refused to adopt a local food procurement policy.
The policy would direct city staff to buy local food, where appropriate, instead of imported food that may come from thousands of miles away.
Please sign this petition to tell City Council that Toronto needs to support local food, local farmers and the environment by adopting a policy to buy local food.
The policy will go to City Council on July 12 & 13 for debate and a vote. For more information read TEA's press release: City Poised to Kill Support for Local Food
