Food Systems

Helping not-for-profits, communities and departments across government develop strategies and projects to reshape Australian regional food systems enabling sustainable, adaptable, and resilient outcomes.

Leah Galvin - Project Consultant and Churchill Fellow

Will our current food systems serve us in an uncertain future?

We all saw how quickly COVID disrupted food supplies everywhere. The pandemic highlighted just how vulnerable our current Australian regional food systems are to external impacts. As have climate impacts such as storms and fires. Our communities now deal with real uncertainty. But these challenges have also created significant opportunity. The time to rethink our food systems is now. Securing our future resilience relies on shaping sustainable food systems. Systems that safeguard livelihoods, reduce emissions, and regenerate our landscapes and biodiversity. And systems that shorten supply chains, and provide fair access to healthy seasonal foods.
