The Vancouver Neighbourhood Food Networks (VNFN) are a network of community organizations committed to promoting food security in neighbourhoods across the City of Vancouver.

VNFN is committed to food equity and access, education, skill building, and advocacy, particularly for community members who are struggling economically. This work is based on the principle that all members of society have the right to quality food. VNFN provides a space for networks to collaborate, share best practices and advocate for food equity & justice, ecologically & culturally sustainable food systems, and community food resilience with a unified voice.

  • FOOD SECURITY FOR ALL

    Neighbourhood Food Networks break down barriers that prevent people from accessing nutrient-rich, affordable, and personally acceptable food.

    We increase access to food includes by offering drop-in meal programs, bulk buying clubs, mobile produce markets, emergency food access, community gardens, school gardens, and more.

  • EDUCATION & ENGAGEMENT

    Neighbourhood Food Networks share knowledge and resources at every level of the food system through community-based education, advocacy, and research.

    We build food literacy by hosting workshops, community kitchens, lectures, films, and discussions.

  • BUILDING COMMUNITY

    Neighbourhood Food Networks’ celebrations and gatherings involve food to meet physical, spiritual, social and emotional needs.

    Our community events increase awareness around food security and reduce social isolation by helping neighbours meet neighbours.

  • FOOD JUSTICE & SOVEREIGNTY

    Neighbourhood Food Networks amplify and empower the voices of underrepresented communities in the local food system.

    We are working towards decolonizing food practices on Unceded Coast Salish Territories.
