Accessiblility

All residents need access to affordable, healthy, and culturally appropriate food. Food is physically available to individuals, who have the resources to grow or buy and prepare it. The ability of individuals to access food is directly related to their level of income and/ or access to resources to produce food, the price of food, and the availability of a sufficient supply of food for all people.

Availability

The food system delivers sufficient food from producers to consumers, and provides reasonable dietary consumer choice of healthy, cultural, religious food. Food is available to residents through diverse sources: stores, farmers markets, farm direct, CSAs, buying clubs, other. Food sources are located along transit routes and within walking distance in neighbourhoods. Residents with mobility assistance aids can move around in food stores and markets. Suitable land is available in the city for community food production.
