Who gets Sustenance? A Community Forum on Dignified Access to Healthy Food for All People

Join our community forum on healthy food access and the sharing of preliminary research being conducted through the Social PLanning and Research Council of BC (SPARC) with residents of Vancouver’s Grandview Woodland neighbourhood and Bella Coola. Participants in this study are being asked to share their ideas and experiences so we can better understand the barriers to dignified access to healthy food by underserved groups. We also want to learn how to overcome those barriers and what underserved people are doing now to eat better. Come share your thoughts on how to improve food access and equity in our communities.
