Vancouver Food Policy Council Meeting

Heading to the Meeting

Vancouver Food Policy Council Meeting
Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

Attending these public meetings is a great opportunity to hear from people who are active in planning and executing goals that support Food, Health, Food Security, Urban Farming and markets. Each person has unique skills that combined create a framework that contributes to feeding Vancouverites. It is in that room that I heard the words Justice and Sustainability interconnected.

The Council discussed a variety of topics. They discussed the current definition of Food Security and it was suggested ‘Food Resiliency’ was more accurate. An Urban Farmer, Grad Student and new Council member presented his work. He is finding opportunity in changing conditions and developing specific ‘working groups’ and an Urban Farmer Network. All in all it was an enlightening evening filled with positive energy, bright minds and good snacks. Every chair was taken and it felt good to be with like-minded enthusiastic and productive people.
