Mar 30, 2021

Throughout the pandemic, one health directive has not changed: one of the most important things we can do for our health is to make time to get outside in the fresh air, stay active, and enjoy the benefits of nature.

As we all work to stay safe by following the latest health orders, the City of Colwood is striving to support the mental health of our community by encouraging residents to head out and enjoy our spectacular natural surroundings. 

One way we do this is by inviting local vendors to offer food for sale at the waterfront, where there is abundant space to stay apart while enjoying the benefits of nature and nourishment.

Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, head to the Lagoon Beach along Ocean Boulevard in Colwood for eats from your favourite local food trucks in the fresh air by the ocean. Wander by the waves, beach comb, bird watch, paddle or just lounge on the sand in the sunshine. Together, but apart.

Supporting all Colwood businesses

The Beach Food initiative gets people out and about in our community, which increases visibility and visits to other Colwood businesses. We'll also use Beach Food signage, promotions and partnerships to encourage support for Colwood's many great restaurants and food providers

Taking extra care to protect health

Current health orders prevent us from dining in at restaurants, while take out service and outdoor activities are encouraged. The Beach Food initiative aligns with these directions.

Vendors will follow the guidelines set out by the Provincial Health Officer for local markets and measures similar to what is required for restaurants.

Colwood’s Beach Food program has always required that food trucks have Island Health permits and Food Safe certification as well as full liability insurance and a valid business license.

During this unique time, they are also required to have a COVID-19 Operations Plan in place to outline specific measures related to personal health, sanitizing, handwashing and distancing.

The City will be marking out food vendor locations that are well distanced from each other. And you'll see reminders about distancing while ordering and receiving food.

So grab a bite, pick a secluded spot on the beach and pull up a log or lay out a blanket to enjoy the fresh ocean air well distanced from others.
