"The Food Security Workgroup was formed in 1993. The group continues to support the concepts as stated in "Food for Now and the Future, a Food Security Strategy" for Ontarians which are

* to ensure that all Ontarians have the means to access affordable, nutritious and personally acceptable foods.

* to ensure a sustainable, safe, high quality food supply in Ontario.

* to promote food consumption patterns that maximize health and minimize disease in Ontario." [from the website]
