Children and Youth

Hi All,

I'm reviewing options for providing food to public at Prince Rupert's recreation complex. Currently, the only food we provide is via three vending contracts. There is pressure from the community to explore healthier options as well as potentially providing better food security to the vulnerable populations that use our facility.

I'm looking for a information on what other facilities have to offer:

Vending machines?
Concession stands? Are they run by staff or contracted out?
Other options?

Description: A Global Movement To Inspire Love Of Nature. Our community is growing the important work being undertaken to connect people with nature exponentially. Rather than providing a “one size fits all” solution, we aim to foster enabling environments to reduce barriers and connect people with nature in different regions, contexts and realities.
In 2015, the Canadian Parks Council (CPC) formed a citizen working group to develop an action guide to connect Canadians with Nature. One year later, The Nature Playbook was launched to great acclaim. The #NatureForAll Playbook has been developed in partnership with the CPC, with input from many other #NatureForAll partners. The #NatureForAll Playbook offers suggestions and possibilities, but also emphasizes the importance of knowing yourself or your organization, and connecting on your own terms—inspiring the love and support for Nature that will lead to increased action for its conservation now and into the future.

In Canada there is currently momentum around creating opportunities to connect people to nature – Here are some initiatives and resources on the national level that show how we can create opportunities in recreation to connect people to nature – and why it is important.

Risk and Risk Management are BIG topics in the conversation about creating programs that connect people to nature. So I'm not even going to try to cover all of the angles of it in one post -- but I thought I would provide some different perspectives about the value of risk our programs. And then I'm hoping you will click on the "reply" button and add your thoughts to create a conversation.

BCRPA is pleased to offer subsidies to help offset costs for before and after school recreation programming for the coming 2017/2018 school year. Subsidies totaling $655,000 will be allocated to communities throughout British Columbia to provide new and/or expanded spaces for before and after school recreation programs, as well as to build local capacity and program legacy (i.e. equipment for continued use). Grants of up to $1500 per program per cycle are available to organizations wishing to expand existing spaces or initiate new before or after school recreation programs for children in the community. The subsidies will support before and after school recreation programs that focus on physical activity, connecting to nature, outdoor play, and engaging in culture, sports and the arts. In addition to program funding, this initiative will also provide training for organization leaders and additional support from BCRPA to help communities build capacity and sustainability for their programs.
