Event Details

As global events send food prices soaring and climate change alters the face of agriculture, food security has become front-page news. What’s going to happen to our food prices? What about our access to safe and nutritious food?

We invite you to join the Vancouver Food Policy Council, Foodtree, and the City of Vancouver to find out how these groups are working to improve food security in this city and connect Vancouver residents to the producers and processors of local foods.

The Program includes:

       Introduction and discussion of the Vancouver Food Policy Council’s Food Secure Vancouver research study and report, "How Food Secure is Vancouver in a Changing World? 2010,” which establishes what food security is and how we can measure it. Discussion will be around how you or your organization can use and contribute to the report, and what comes next. The report can be downloaded for reading before the event at www.foodsecurevancouver.ca.

       Introduction to an exciting new mobile application being developed by Foodtree (www.foodtree.com) in partnership with the City of Vancouver, that highlights local food assets in Vancouver.

       Introduction and first public consultation on the development of the Vancouver Food Strategy by City of Vancouver staff.

A dinner of local foods prepared by Vancouver chefs and caterers will accompany our discussion. A $5 cash donation at the door will help us cover our food expenses.
