Background: how we got here

The ways that we produce, access, prepare, eat, and dispose of food is directly linked to the sustainability of our city, and the vibrancy of our neighbourhoods.

Currently, there is unequal food access and distribution between neighbourhoods. Unifying food policies into a strategy will:

  • Integrate individual policies into a more coordinated approach
  • Help us fully address Vancouver's food challenges
  • Align food system goals within broader City plans and processes
