Table Matters Steering Committee members are our Network decision makers. The Steering Committee is made up of representatives from Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH), the City of North Vancouver, the District of North Vancouver, the District of West Vancouver, School District #44, local non-profit organizations and members from the community.
Steering Committee members meet bi-monthly and oversee projects that support the North Shore Community Food Charter. Food Charter Signatories are de facto Steering Committee 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 steering committee 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, BC Healthy Communities, and VanCity.
