Vancouver Food Strategy going to City Council

We along with the City of Vancouver’s food policy staff are excited that the Vancouver Food Strategy and also Farmers Market Policy is going to City Council for their consideration next week. The Food Strategy has been a long time in the making and we are proud to have been a part of its development.

The Strategy will be presented to regular Council meeting on Tuesday 29th, and then Council will hear from speakers on Wednesday 30th at the Standing Committee. The agenda details and Food Strategy document can be found here. The meeting will kick off at 9:30am in Council Chamber, Third Floor, City Hall on Tuesday Jan 29th – though timing may be subject to changes as it goes for all meetings.

Please come out and show City Council that you support this important next stage in the development of food policy in Vancouver!

Your input on the food strategy is welcome! If you cannot attend the meeting, you can communicate your thoughts to the Mayor and Councillors by sending an email to and they will receive all correspondence.
