A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:

In 2021 Douglas College joined the Feed BC program and made a further commitment to local food education, innovation and procurement.

Feed BC works with institutions, stakeholders and partners across the food service supply chain to increase the use of B.C. foods in B.C. government supported institutions, facilities, programs and services.

Feed BC’s three inclusive partnership streams enable flexibility to demonstrate partner commitment and support to increasing B.C. foods in ways that best reflect institutional values, priorities and practices. The Feed BC program includes minimum goals and standards to support B.C. food procurement, B.C. food definitions and targets, B.C. food tracking methodology, and other procurement tools and resources to assist partners with their Feed BC local food work.

As Douglas College continues to explore new innovative and educational opportunities around local food, in collaboration with food services partner Chartwells, the College is also committed to working towards a 30% target for B.C. food expenditures on campus.

Some of Douglas’s current local food suppliers and partners: BC Fresh Farms, Nana’s Kitchen, Weston Bakery.
