How can we reach our 2020 Greenest City targets?

More street food more places

The City's recent allocation of 17 new street-food licenses is a good start. Let's take it to the next level with street food hubs on city-owned parking lots or under-utilized alleyways. These centres could be modelled after those in Portland and feature a wide variety of local, healthy options. A bonus idea: a plate refund system like at the Folk Fest -- so that packaging and wrap can be minimized or done away with!

    I was just in Portland and loved the vibrant street food scene! Office workers in the downtown core only need to walk a few blocks to eat great, affordable food from all over the world. The neighborhoods we visited outside of downtown also had their own 'pods' of trucks! It was so exciting to see such creativity being used by each truck with their own, signature dish. DELICIOUS! Vancouver could only benefit from an added influx into it's already great food scene. Please support this endeavour!

    Vancouver's food cart scene has grown rapidly in the first 2 months. i would love to see 60+ more for next year!
