Thought about Food? Understanding the Relationship between Public Policy and Food Security in Nova Scotia, a Background Paper and Policy Lens

October 2006.

This document was designed to show policy makers how every government level and policy sector can have a positive influence on food security. The document contains a Food Security Policy Lens, which is a series of analytical questions designed to promote critical thought about the impact of program and policy decisions on food security in Nova Scotia. It is the hope of the Nova Scotia Food Security Projects that after reading this document and using the Food Security Policy Lens, policy makers will appreciate the relevance of food security to their work and will seek opportunities to contribute to the development of food security for all Nova Scotians.
