​The Vancouver Food Strategy is an example of social, environmental, economic, and health goals for a city and its food. This example builds on years of food systems initiatives and grassroots community development, considering aspects of the food system from seed to table to compost heap and back again. The authors state that everyone has a stake in food systems, whether it involves growing food in the city, having a local food market within walking or cycling distance, improving access to affordable food, or taking part in community food celebrations.
