The Food Alliance is an Australian organisation working to achieve a food system that ensures sustainable food security and healthy eating for the Victorian population.
We take an innovative approach to improve local and state food systems, making food systems healthier, more environmentally sustainable and socially just while spurring economic development. We promote integrated policy solutions that realise multiple benefits across the food system.
This VicHealth funded initiative, hosted by Deakin University’s Food Policy Unit, gives voice to concerns of stakeholders such as local government and community groups, while engaging in research into food systems and policy recommendations.
Our areas of work include:
The Food Alliance is advocating for a National Food Plan that puts public health, environmental sustainability, social equity and economic prosperity at the heart of the nation’s food policy.
The Food Alliance is calling for action to improve the resilience of Victoria’s fruit and vegetable supply.
The Food Alliance is advocating for minimum, mandatory health and sustainability standards for food bought and served within the public sector.
