The Moreland community does a range of exciting work in relation to food, including growing at home, social enterprises, community gardens, free food events, food swaps and food festivals.

Council developed the Moreland Food System Strategy to provide the building blocks for the community and Council to advance a sustainable, just and vibrant food system into the future.

The implementation of this strategy seeks opportunities to learn and create a resilient local food system together.

This strategy was based on community input that informed the Seeding Change report (PDF 14Mb) and was launched in September 2017.
