Healthy City Stragtegy Goal 3: Feeding ourselves well

Feeding ourselves well


A healthy, just, and sustainable food system.


Increase citywide and neighbourhood food assets by a minimum of 50% by 2020.


We work with community organizations to create sustainable and just food systems. In partnership with the Vancouver Food Policy Council, we created and adopted the Vancouver Food Strategy in 2013. The Strategy addresses a number of gaps and vulnerabilities in the food system.

Considerations for this goal include:

  • Unequal access to healthy, affordable food
  • Opportunities to better support the local food economy
  • Making more resources available for underserved and vulnerable communities
  • Community development initiatives
