Description

The Food for all program by VicHealth was designed to increase regular access to, and consumption of, a variety of foods (particularly fruit and vegetables) by people living in disadvantaged communities.

One of the strategies of Food for all is to encourage local government authorities to improve integrated planning of those things that influence access to food, such as transport, housing, economic development and land use. To assist this process ten micro-movies and information sheets have been designed by VicHealth to assist local government. They describe ten broad categories of action to take to assist residents, especially those vulnerable to food security, with access to affordable, culturally appropriate, and healthy foods.

The Food for all program demonstrated that many barriers to food security stem from systems that local governments cannot directly alter. Advocacy highlights the areas where local governments can advocate on behalf of its residents to influence food insecurity.
