The campaign wants to see food policy included in debates and party platforms with the goal to create zero hunger across the country.  NFU Youth President Alex Fletcher and Youth Vice-President Ayla Fenton worked with FSC to develop their policy recommendations for one of four pillars: Support for new farmers.
