The mission of the LCFMS is to create a food secure community by improving access to local, healthy, affordable food to the community. Local is considered the shortest possible distance between the producer and the consumer for seasonal items grown and made in BC.
The LCFMS aims to be a sustainable non-profit society, meaning its outputs do not exceed inputs on any resource level including human, financial, creative and environmental.
A community approach actively seeks participation from, and development with, community members including neighbourhood residents and supporters, area businesses, and community organizations including non-profit and NGO’s. The LCFMS strives to increase awareness of local food issues and increase education about and in support of regional agriculture.
