Have your say about government action on food security

27 June 2024

Food security is when all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life.

The Community Plate will be writing a submission for The Victorian Legislative Council ‘Inquiry into Food Security Victoria.’ to represent our local catchment across Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula.

They strongly encourage individuals, groups and networks to also do so.

Alternatively, if you would like to send a story, contribution, or photo with a caption to include in our submission, please contact us at thecommunityplate@gmail.com for more information and a template with some ideas.

This is such an important opportunity to have our say about:

  • the impact of food security on our community across Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula,
  • what drives food insecurity locally, and
  • Government actions we believe will lower the cost of food and improve access to affordable, nourishing and culturally appropriate food.

Stories, photographs and contributions for inclusion in The Community Plate’s submission are due by Friday 12th July.
