B.C. patients served more local food than ever before

Ministry of Health
News Release

Provincial health-care facilities are working hard to serve patients and residents more local food, supporting farmers, fishers, ranchers and processors, and connecting more people with food from B.C. communities.

To encourage, inspire and support the shift to B.C. foods, the Ministry of Health partnered with the Ministry of Agriculture and all of B.C.’s health authorities to implement Feed BC in health-care facilities.

Feed BC is a provincial government priority to increase the use of foods grown and processed in B.C. in government-supported facilities. Led by the Ministry of Agriculture, Feed BC builds capacity and support along the food service supply chain to bring more local foods to patients, residents, students and clients throughout the province.
