    Low footprint food choices are not the same as vegan food choices in all cases, the analysis is more complex than this. Generally a low footprint diet is local, seasonal food, and limits consumption of red meat, dairy, and some grains. Low footprint food choices are included in the draft Greenest City Action Plan and will be discussed through community engagement activities.

    EVERYONE knows that vegetarian/Vegan is healthier way of life, but the City can benefit in more ways than one. E.g In the new street food program, if there was a stipulation that each food vendor needs to have Vegetarian as well as vegan friendly options, it would speak highly of the city. Not only will vancouverite's cholestrol levels would dip, but also it will make them more aware of being fit and health and conservation etc. the more people know about this, the more action will make us the greenest city that much quicker.

    The City supports Metro Vancouver’s plans to ban food scraps from the incinerator and landfills by 2015. The City will collaborate with Metro Vancouver to develop and implement a plan to ensure apartments, condos, businesses and institutions have access to food scraps collection programs before the ban comes into effect.
