Food Policy Council Meeting

  Wednesday October 13th, 2010

 I did something different today, I went to a meeting of the Vancouver Food Policy Council. The Council is comprised of people from a broad spectrum including SPEC, Parks Board, SFU, UBC, Vancouver Coastal Health, Provincial government, Urban farmers and Vancouver School Board.

Tonight I experienced democracy in action. Each and every one of these people is there because they care about contributing in a meaningful to the quality of life of all Vancouverites.

 The Council was formed in 2003 as a result of a City mandate for sustainable food systems. They are engaged and effective in supporting communities across Vancouver with programs such as community gardens, pocket markets and zero-waste programs.
