Help get and give food

We're striving to create a food system that is environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable.

This includes:

  • Establishing partnerships with private businesses, non-profit groups, and volunteers
  • Developing innovative new policies and regulations to create a sustainable food system
  • Increasing public awareness of the link between local food and a healthy environment
  • Investing in urban food projects through grants and funding
  • Increasing city and neighbourhood food assets by 50%

You can help, too. Learn how to create a healthy, sustainable food system that benefits people, the local economy, environment, and development of our city.
