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.
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.

Some specific things that CoV could do within its current powers: Support Meatless Monday program, cater all city events with primarily vegan options, sponsor a study of the dietary / food production options to get a majority of nutritive and caloric content from the local region (efficiency will likely require less meat), encourage Metro Vancouver to cater events with primarily vegan options. Bring a resolution to UBCM calling on the province to do the same.
