Health is vitally connected to the food we consume. Healthy communities are built, in part, when healthy choices are available and there is access to a safe, personally acceptable, nutritious diet that maximizes healthy choices and prevents disease.
Table Matters strives for everyone on the North Shore to have access to food choices that are:
- safe, whole, fresh and minimally processed;
- of high quality;
- affordable for everyone; and
- available with dignity and without barriers.
In 2013 Table Matters and Vancouver Coastal Health supported a unique community project called Scaling-up Food Rescue. This project supported the Food Charter and its guiding principle of health, access and equity. Learn more about Scaling Up Food Rescue.
