April 15 Meeting: A New Term of the VFPC

The Vancouver Food Policy Council is back in action. Join us for our first meeting of the term on April 15 from 6-8:30 PM in the Town Hall Room, City Hall. Social to follow at Original Joe’s (upstairs on the north west corner of Cambie and Broadway).

See the proposed agenda>>

The list of new (and returning) members including liaisons is below. How does the VFPC get selected? As one of many of the City of Vancouver’s citizen advisory committees VFPC voting members are appointed by a committee of Vancouver’s City Council. With over 80 applicants this time for the VFPC alone, City Council had lots of talent to choose from. Read more about the VFPC on the City of Vancouver website here.
