The Vancouver Food Asset Map highlights food assets located across the city of Vancouver.
Food assets are places where people can grow, prepare, share, buy, receive or learn about food. Community organizations and schools are included on the map because they are places where community members can get support with learning and health or connect with others in their community.
Community food security exists when…
“… all community residents obtain a safe, personally acceptable, nutritious diet through a sustainable food system that maximizes healthy choices, community self-reliance and equal access for everyone.”
– Hamm and Bellows, 2003
