    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.

    Kudoz to the councilor who fought for healthier Food options and even vegan ones to be offered in kiosks throughout Vancouver - this will enhance the City's profile with local and international patrons.

    All data points to the proven environmental benefits of not breeding-not consuming animal products. Water is far too precious and getting too rare for that! In fact many municipal administrations are increasingly encouraging citizens to promote organic farming and switch adopt a vegan diet (for example, in Belgium the City of Ghent, begins with a meat-ban everywhere in town (yes, in restaurant, univ campus and school cafeterias) held every Thursday. Tracking software can help the City of Vancouver calculate the carbon offset that such a measure, times 2 or 3 days a week would generate (as revenue too!) for Vancouver and its residents!
