Simcoe County Food CouncilSimcoe County Food Council<p><strong>​The County of Simcoe funds the position of the Food Coordinator of the Simcoe County Food Council through the Social and Community Investment Fund (SCIF). The Food Coordinator supports the community efforts of the Food Council. ​​</strong><span style="font-size:1em;">​​​​​</span></p><p><span style="font-size:1em;">T</span><span style="font-size:1em;">he </span><span style="font-size:1em;">community-based Simcoe County Food Council (Food Council) will further coordination and  collaboration of efforts, programs, and initiatives, to enhance community food security and decrease household food insecurity in Simcoe County. The Food Council will use the Simcoe  County Food Security Framework (Framework) as a guide and menu of proposed actions items  to support and advance.  </span><br></p><p><strong>Background</strong></p><p>In 2017, the County of Simcoe approved funding to support the development of a Simcoe County Food Security Framework. A Food Security Framework Advisory Committee was developed, comprised of community members and County staff. The firm of Eco-Ethonomics Inc. was contracted to undertake broad community consultation to develop the Framework. </p><p><span style="font-size:1em;">​Re</span><span style="font-size:1em;">commendations from the Simcoe County Food Security Framework included the development of a Simcoe County Food Council and the engagement of a community agency to host a related Community Coordinator position. The Food Council, led by the Community Coordinator</span><span style="font-size:1em;">,</span><span style="font-size:1em;"> supports coordination and collaboration of food security efforts, programs, and initiatives, and leverages existing networks to better connect partners across Simcoe County.</span><span style="font-size:1em;">​</span></p><p><strong style="font-size:1em;">Vision</strong><br></p><p>The Food Council envisions a sustainable, equitable, and secure local food system in Simcoe County that  recognizes food as a human right. It is an inter-connected food system where safe, sufficient,  nutritious, culturally appropriate food is financially and physically accessible to everyone through dignified means, and where the people are actively working toward realizing a more food secure  Simcoe County. <br><strong style="font-size:1em;"><br>Simcoe County Food Security Framework Goals</strong><br></p><p>The Simcoe County Food Security Framework is a blueprint of proposed action items to achieve the Food Council's​​ goal for a food secure and sustainable Simcoe County. Goals focus on the following areas:</p><p>1. Household food insecurity in Simcoe County  </p><p>2. Support income and housing solutions</p><p>3. Increase physical access to sufficient nutritious food for all </p><p>4. Improve community food literacy </p><p>5. Support the local agri-food sector  </p><p>6. Foster Simcoe County's food traditions and Indigenous food knowledge and culture </p><p>7. Collaboration toward a food secure Simcoe County <br></p><p><strong style="font-size:1em;">Household Food Insecurity and Community Food Security</strong><br></p><p>Two important but distinct concepts that impact the Food Council's ability to be a food secure community. Both of these measures need to be addressed in the work the Food Council is doing.<br></p><p><span style="text-decoration-line:underline;font-size:1em;">Household Food Insecurity:</span><br></p><p>Household food insecurity is experienced when an individual or household lacks the financial resources to access food.

  Early Years Data  

 

 

Early Development Instrument (EDI) DataEarly Development Instrument (EDI) Data<p> <strong class="ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-1-5">​​​What is the EDI? </strong></p><p>The EDI is a 103-item questionnaire completed by kindergarten teachers in the second half of the school year that measures children’s ability to meet age-appropriate developmental expectations in five general domains. After teachers complete the EDI on each individual child in their class, the results are grouped together to give a snap shot of how children are doing across schools, neighbourhoods, cities, or even​ provinces and countries. The EDI data can be helpful for a variety of different users. The Government can use EDI data to plan early childhood investment, inform policy and program development decisions, or evaluate programs.
