Abstract: Community food security is a framework for community development that engages the sustainability of the local food system and the equitable distribution of food resources. This project suggests a community food design program that optimizes the potential for a sustainable and equitable local food system, and applies it to the Renfrew Collingwood community in Vancouver, British Columbia. The basic principles of the program require equitable access to food distribution and the allocation of land for food production. The applied program is described as a community design plan, and suggests that with minimal changes to the patterns of land use, and significant changes to the use of the public landscape, such a system would support a food sufficiency rate of 5 to 20 percent.
