Local and organic food
Vancity invests in businesses, not-for-profits and sector initiatives that are focused on local and organic food - in order to grow and promote a viable and sustainable local food system. One that contributes to a healthier environment, improved individual health, and a more resilient local economy.
We know that one of the most important issues facing us today is food security, and ensuring that we have continued access to local and organic food.
By supporting local producers, processors and manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors, the retail/food service sector, and waste management businesses, we invest in organizations to make a difference.
We also know it is important to support partnerships in the community that are working towards increased sustainability – with government, business and the not-for-profit sector.
