Central Okanagan Food Policy CouncilCultivating food security in our community
What we do
A healthy and sustainable food system is everyone’s business! We are passionate about building community understanding of how our food is produced and how we participate in our food system.
Food Action Projects are inspired by community need and address gaps within our local food system. See which projects we have worked on to promote community health, vibrancy, food security, and the local economy.
Many policies impact how our food is produced and our ability to acess and eat that food. We work with community members to advocate for policies that lead to a healthy, sustainable food system and equal access for all.
