The City of Nanaimo is preparing a Nanaimo Food Charter and Food Strategy, which is intended to focus on the specific needs, assets and desires of the community in achieving a healthy, prosperous and sustainable food system.

Have you:

  • Thought about ways we can be healthier and improve our community through food?
  • Thought about how we can create more business opportunities and jobs through food?
  • Met other people who also have great ideas about food, and are willing to share them?

Have you thought about…

  • Growing more food locally?  From your back yard?  Local farms?
  • Keeping livestock or bees for food production?  What does that look like?
  • Manufacturing local food products?  Jam?  Seafood?  Other specialty items?
  • Unique ways to celebrate food?
  • Innovative ways to provide more affordable food?  What about emergency situations?
  • Other cities (places) where you’ve seen unique food ideas unfold?  What does that look like for Nanaimo?

What about other ideas?
