Kingston community steaming over KGH food decision

Local food campaign says “it isn’t over until we say it’s over
“Kingston residents filled Kingston City Hall last night for the first in a series of ‘think local’ public meetings as part of the community campaign focused on getting Kingston General Hospital (KGH) to develop a made-in-Kingston solution for patient food.
The groundswell of community opposition to the KGH deal with multi-national food giant Compass Corporation should have been heeded because the “sustainability of our community is at stake.  We’re here to tell the hospital that the Kingston food fight isn’t over until we say it’s over,” said Dianne Dowling with local chapter of the National Farmers Union (NFU), one of the community coalition partners which also include: People Who Care About Kingston, Campaign to Save the Prison Farms, Urban Gardeners of Kingston, Kingston & District Labour Council, Sisters of Providence and CUPE 1974.
