Food Security Action Plan
On October 1, 2018, New Westminster City Council endorsed the Food Security Action Plan. The plan was a response to increasing levels of food insecurity and a number of barriers related to food security efforts in New Westminster, including lack of awareness, limited access and poor coordination. The plan, which involved over 30 community, faith, settlement and social service organizations in its development, includes 38 actions which are organized according to six key areas. The New Westminster Homelessness Coalition Society and the New Westminster Community Food Action Committee, with a grant from the City of New Westminster, will be responsible for plan implementation.
