The Brandon Food Charter has been established by the Brandon Poverty Committee to help promote the development of food initiatives and policy within the community, through organizations and at the local government level.

The charter is based on the principle that all citizens, regardless of economic and social status, should have access to sufficient, affordable and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and to be free from hunger.

Brandon is the first municipality in Manitoba to have a Food Charter in place. The charter was recently endorsed by Brandon City Council and officially signed by Mayor Shari Decter Hirst during a community celebration at Brandon City Hall April 10.
