This project responds to the need to for better collaboration around efforts to create a healthier and equitable food system to deepen impact. "Good Food Solutions for BC" will capture, share and support implementation of BC-based better practices and facilitate innovation scaling (out, up and deep). With support from the Vancouver Foundation we will focus on: 1) Indigenous food sovereignty, 2) transitioning the charitable food sector and 3) supporting healthy and equitable school food systems. Funding granted from the Vancouver Foundation in the Fall of 2014 was used to recruit additional members and partners, convene and webinars, and support communication platforms for working groups in the this project's 3 core areas.
The project will facilitate community organizations, funders, public and private sectors to work together to: 1) gather, document, and share information in priority areas, 2) discuss and promote better practices, 3) identify related policy issues, 4) develop specific policy proposals, 5) develop public communications materials.
