L-U class has recipe to encourage local food production

A Lakehead University social work class has some ideas on how city council can support local food production. The class presented to council at Monday's meeting  and says changes like serving local food at city-run facilities and teaching kids in school about gardening would be a boost for food production in the region. The students made the presentation as part of their coursework where they're encouraged to apply their learning to real world situations. The class invited councillors to a roundtable discussion at Lakehead on March 23rd to talk more about the subject.
