Food Charter and Food System Strategy | City of Burnaby

Urban Food Strategies worked with the project Steering Committee and City of Burnaby staff to develop a food charter and food system strategy. A key part of this work was developing and updating a food asset map that includes information on a wide-range of food assets in Burnaby. The Food Charter was developed by the community, for the community and serves as a guiding document for all organizations working in food security in Burnaby. UFS worked with a multi-lingual community engagement specialist to connect with community members at their place of work, helping to overcome challenges associated with hard to reach groups. The Food System Strategy contains goals and objectives including a focus on food assets and cultural food assets.
