Advisory Committee Members

Table Matters Advisory members are our Network decision makers. The Advisory is made up of representatives from Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH), the City of North Vancouver, the District of North Vancouver, and the District of West Vancouver and, our host agency, the North Shore Neighbourhood House.

Advisory members meet 3 to 4 times a year and oversee projects that support the North Shore Community Food Charter. Food Charter Signatories are de facto Advisory members and are welcome at all our meetings and events. Committee activities involve promoting, educating, advocating, leading, incubating and partnering on projects on Vancouver’s North Shore.

This community Advisory receives financial and staff support from the Vancouver Coastal Health SMART Fund. We also gratefully acknowledge funding and/or support from the City and District of North Vancouver and the District of West Vancouver as well as INNOWEAVE, who has been supporting our Food Culture and Children Collective Impact project.

Current Members include:

Co-Chairs Lisa Hubbard and Tricia Andrew, North Shore Neighbourhood House

Margaret Broughton, Vancouver Coastal Health

Betina Wheeler, Table Matters Network Coordinator

Heather Evans, City of North Vancouver

Cristina Rucci, District of North Vancouver

Arleta Beckett, District of West Vancouver

Other Network members participate on the Advisory on a project basis.
