Tri-Cities Region Food Security Action Plan


In 2021 Upland Agricultural Consulting was contracted by the Tri-Cities Region (City of Coquitlam, City of Port Coquitlam, City of Port Moody, Village of Anmore, and Village of Belcarra) to embark upon their first Food Security Action Plan. The Plan provides recommendations and guidance for community food security and household food insecurity in the region by providing clear direction for local governments to ensure that food security policies and initiatives are innovative, collaborative, and aligned.

The Plan was completed over 3 phases:

  • Development of community profiles and policy analysis
  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Finalization of the food security action plan

The final plan includes 5 goals with specific recommended actions which are within the jurisdictional control of the Tri-Cities, and are informed by the voices of Tri-Cities community members and sector experts. In addition to the Food Security Action Plan, the project deliverables included a publicly available Food Asset Map and a Food Charter tailored to the specific context of the region.
