During his years at the Toronto Food Policy Council, Wayne learned the ins
and outs of many of the big food issues cities are facing now. He
co-authored the first food charter adopted by a major city and worked to
keep it relevant for over nine years. He played a leading role with two
efforts to develop a comprehensive food strategy, and one to develop a
comprehensive environmental strategy.
To share what he learned in these fields of theory, policy and action, Wayne
offers both one- and two-day workshops for relatively small groups of
engaged government officials and citizen leaders who are exploring the
feasibility of food policy councils, food strategies and food charters.
An award-winning teacher and adult educator prior to working on food issues,
Wayne shapes workshops that promote problem-solving skills alongside the
content issues that people need to move forward effectively.
Some workshop ideas:
- How to slowly and steadily move your food service toward a local, sustainable and healthy meal plan
- Will work for food: great jobs and right livelihood in new food careers of future
