Sustain BC is our largest program area, supported by three of BC’s major social impact funders. This project aims to foster sustainable food systems in BC at the provincial level, using a collective impact / multi-sectoral governance model for which the BCFSN serves as the backbone organization.

Sustain BC grew out of our Good Food Solutions project and is just starting the second year of a two-year inaugural phase where it is about to launch a common agenda and multi-sectoral Leadership Council. The agenda is based on three years of investigation into sustainable food systems around the province. A conference to update progress and develop next steps is to be planned for late 2017 or early 2018.

We gratefully acknowledge the funding support of the Real Estate Foundation, Vancity enviroFund, and the Vancouver Foundation.REF
