food policy

The ice storms in the Lower Mainland last year prompted an inevitable crisis — highways were closed and food trucks couldn’t make it up here. Store shelves started emptying…We were having a food system breakdown.

Grassroots networks like Burnaby Food First undertake multiple strategies to advance food security action and policy, from food skills workshops and community outreach to working with municipal government and convening stakeholders across sectors.

Squamish and the Sunshine Coast are enabling food policy through collaboration across sectors.
