News: Vancouver Food Asset Map tutorial in the DTES

Calling all community service providers!

Have you heard about the Vancouver Food Asset Map?

This map highlights the many food resources available across Vancouver neighbourhoods.

Mapping food assets helps highlight the strengths, gaps and areas for improvement in our local food systems.

Community service providers (such as yourself!) can use these maps to help themselves or their clients access food, enhance food literacy, and build community connections. We invite you to come be a part of an exciting project to help improving food accessibility in your local community!

Join us at our upcoming tutorial events where we will show you how to use the Vancouver Food Asset Map, including:

  • Step by step instructions on how to use the map
  • Commonly asked questions – explained
  • Take home multi-lingual instructions for distribution
