Transforming the Food Environment: Strategies and Resources Toolkit

The purpose of this handout is to share strategies and resources for working with local, municipal decision makers to influence the development and implementation of municipal policies to create healthier community food environments.
The strategies and resources listed in this toolkit are based on a recent literature review on healthy public policy and working with public health units in Ontario. This handout highlights a selection of relevant resources that cover a range of topics, but is not intended to be exhaustive. The resources included have been found to be useful and practical and were also freely accessible. This is supplementary material for a presentation by Kim at the Nutrition Resource Centre: Taking Action to Create a Healthier Food Environment workshop held on October 30, 2015 and at the Sustain Ontario: Bring Food Home 2015 Conference.
