The “Greenbelting Toronto” campaign has been successful in encouraging the adoption of a 50% target for local food procurement.

Many Torontonians are not aware of the abundance of resources provided by a healthy greenbelt right outside of their city. In its trademark campaigning style, the Toronto Environmental Alliance (TEA) is working with Torontonians and other organizations to raise awareness and generate pressure on policy makers, to help preserve and grow the Greenbelt.

Greenbelting Toronto: Greenbelting Toronto is the first phase of TEA’s successful Greenbelt campaign, which has successfully lobbied the Toronto City Council to adopt the Local Food Procurement Policy and Implementation Plan that prioritizes Greenbelt-grown food for purchase in City institutions.

Greenbelting Toronto 2.0: Greenbelting Toronto 2.0 build’s on TEA’s successful “Greenbelting Toronto” project to further encourage adoption and implementation of Greenbelt-friendly policies by the City of Toronto. The project focuses on maintaining a stable market for Greenbelt farmers by ensuring the effective implementation of Toronto’s Local Food Procurement Policy, and growing the Greenbelt in Toronto.
