Community Food Atlas

The community food atlas is currently under redevelopment.

The Community Food Atlas is a joint initiative of Island Health, the Public Health Association of BC and the University of Victoria. In addition to being an interactive, visual platform for community food security programs, it is a “live” directory that can be updated by participating organizations at any time. The atlas provides current information about programs and services available to the public such as: 

  • community gardens
  • gardening workshops
  • gleaning programs
  • farmers markets
  • meal programs, meal-bags, & snacks
  • food banks & food cupboards 
  • good food boxes
  • food vouchers
  • nutrition workshops
  • cooking classes
  • community kitchens
The Food Atlas relies on community organizations to enter their own program information and to keep the atlas up to date – the more groups that participate, the more successful the atlas will be as a community tool for improving food access and food security awareness in the Island Health Region.
