In response to a number of City of Vancouver and Park Board plans, the City’s Sustainability Group and Park Board piloted a local food menu at park and beach concessions. This report aimed to evaluate best practices for local, sustainable, and/or healthy food procurement in other North American municipalities as well as to review current research regarding consumer preference for local or sustainable food. The report also discusses the findings from a survey on the public response to the Park Board concession local food pilot.
