Health, Access
& Equity

Health is vitally connected to the food we consume. Healthy communities are built, in part, when healthy choices are available and there is access to a safe, personally acceptable, nutritious diet that maximizes healthy choices and prevents disease.

Table Matters strives for everyone on the North Shore to have access to food choices that are:

  • 2.1Health&Equity-Roundsafe, whole, fresh and minimally processed;
  • of high quality;
  • affordable for everyone; and
  • available with dignity and without barriers.

In 2013 Table Matters and Vancouver Coastal Health supported a unique community project called Scaling-up Food Rescue. This project supported the Food Charter and its guiding principle of health, access and equity. Learn more about Scaling Up Food Rescue.
