Good Food Shift: addressing food insecurity through creating healthy food environments

The social challenge we are addressing is community health and wellbeing related to food insecurity. Food insecurity is up from 12% to 14% in the CRD in the last five years. Currently children and families in need are mainly served through downtown food banks. The Good Food Network is working with public institutions like schools, health and recreation centers, and community food hubs to find better ways to build healthy food environments (policy and programs) with connections, resources and access to food where families live, learn and play. With the Food Rescue project as a new lever, we can make the Good Food Shift now distributing 1 million pounds of fresh foods to community settings.
