Food Action Plan

Food Secure Oliver

The purpose of the 3-year project is to build upon recent food security work and through community engagement, hiring a contracted human resource consultant, forming a Food Action Committee, developing a Community Food Security Plan for Oliver, adopting that plan for implementation and commencing the implementation process.  The implementation phase would include formally embedding the Plan into existing local government processes, such as the Official Community plan and any relevant bylaws.   The desired outcome is a systematic approach to ensuring year-round access to safe, affordable, locally sourced nutritious food for Oliver and Area C residents.
