Event Description

Over the last few months, the City of Vancouver Food Policy team has been working on the beginnings of the Vancouver Food Strategythe City's first official food plan. 
We are in the first part of public engagement for the Food Strategy and keeping in tune with our mantra "Talk Food With Us" we have been going to various events around town talking about food with Vancouverites: where they get it from, if they grow it, how they prepare it, dispose of it, etc. as well as identifying where great food destinations are in their neighbourhoods or "food assets" and what is missing from their neighbourhood food system "food gaps", and so on...
But we can't talk food with Vancouver alone and know that conversations and stories about food are everywhere, everyday. That's why we're looking for Volunteer Community Food Animators  who will bring food conversations alive throughout the city and help inform the food strategy.
The goals of Community Food Animation however go beyond informing policy, and being an animator doesn't require you to be a policy person at all. The only requirements are that you have passion, interest, and as much extra time as you're willing to commit

Check out the brochure below - if this sounds like your cup of tea, we are holding an orientation session on Wednesday, November 23rd from 5-6pm at the Woodwards Building. Contact if you are interested in attending, volunteering as a Community Food Animator, or would like more information.

If you have to leave your village, how will you get where you want to go? By car? Preferably not, both for your wallet and the earth’s sake. This category is for all discussions relating to how we all get around.

A human right? After food, most feel shelter is the most important necessity. A place of shelter is also the start of a community. This category is for all things relating to shelter, housing, affordable housing, homes, renewable heating systems, green buildings, heritage, and our built environment in general.
