Community Food Asset Mapping and Focus Group Charrette

About the Event

We are a team of researchers from Simon Fraser University working on a research project to help support strategies that may improve food access, food security and food system resiliency for community members in the City of Vancouver.

We are inviting individuals residing in the City of Vancouver to attend a community food asset mapping and focus group event. At this event we will identify food resources, practices, and places that are important and are meaningful for the community. The research team will include community feedback and perspectives to develop an online interactive community food asset map.
