"In 2013, the city of Gent launched the Gent en Garde policy and more recently, in 2016, the Brussels-Capital region implemented the Good Food Strategy. Both initiatives define areas of intervention and concrete action, which include the promotion of local products, the reduction of food waste, the raising of citizen awareness and involvement, and the creation of sustainable alliances between territorial actors who work in the food trade12. The two initiatives plan to set up Food Policy Councils. It is a unique opportunity to implement a participatory strategy for the realisation of food rights in Belgium." (
