Funding Neighborhood Food Security in Vancouver

The city of Vancouver has announced a plan to dedicate $100,000 to fund neighborhood-based food security projects.

According to this report from The Vancouver Sun, the funds will go to projects that "will do things like divert edible food from local businesses to community kitchens, buy organic produce from wholesalers for non-profit resale to people with low incomes, and create shared neighbourhood composting systems."
