Food

All people should have physical and economic access to enough nutritious, culturally appropriate, safe food to allow them to lead healthy and active lives. With global warming, droughts and the inevitable rise in the cost of all fuels, food is becoming more expensive in Western Australia.

Lynn is campaigning to ensure:

  • that the social, health and environmental issues associated with food production are fully considered in agricultural policy
  • that people to have access to food that is healthy and locally produced
  • a more diverse, flexible and resilient food production system
  • the humane treatment of animals used for food
  • comprehensive food labelling
  • increased benefits to rural communities from food production in their region
  • a review of National Competition Policy legislation to favour local production close to final markets due to rising transport costs and carbon emissions
  • more local shops within walking and bicycle range of customers.
