On April 26, 2016 forty-six community stakeholders & leaders gathered at the St. Joseph’s Mother House for a full day action planning session for the Nipissing and Area Food Charter. ┬áParticipants included representatives from: community/social service agencies, farms, farming associations, markets, gardens, local businesses, municipal government, schools, colleges, school boards, libraries, funders, and the general public.
