Writing a letter to your MP is the first step to getting government to hear your concerns and collaborate in your work towards building a healthier, more just and sustainable food system.
As part of our post Eat Think Vote campaign, we have created a template letter for each of the main political parties that community organizations can use to develop or solidify your relationship with your elected federal representative.

We are happy to say that we are able to offer honoraria to organizations who wish to take part in this initiative. No specific criteria are required to receive a $100 honorarium* — you simply have to abide by two core principles of our Eat Think Vote campaign: respect and non-partisanship. We invite you to send us your final letter for review prior to sending it to your MP.
Be sure to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining the movement, would like to send your final letter for review, to receive an honorarium to offset costs or if you have any additional questions.
*Please note that there is a limited number of honoraria available. As such, organizations will be selected on a first-come-first-serve basis.
