Are you interested in growing your own food or starting a community kitchen? Do you have food skills you’d like to share with your neighbours?

Come to this lively evening of presentations by community groups from across Vancouver who are making their neighbourhoods more resilient, neighbourly and food secure.

Presenting groups will include recipients of the 2010 Greenest City Neighborhood grants, and others! There will even be a round of Food Jeopardy, courtesy of The Downtown Eastside Kitchen Tables Project!

From community potlucks and mobile produce markets to bulk buying clubs, it’s a bumper crop of great ideas.

Refreshments will be provided. Please register in advance as seating is limited and we want to make sure we have enough food.

This event is graciously hosted by SUSTENANCE: Feasting on Arts and Culture Festival. Centered around World Food Day, SUSTENANCE is a celebration which reflects the intersection of art, culture and food in real life! Come join the fun and enter into an exciting dialogue with food from local to global, from historic to present day! Oct 8 – Oct 19th.

Accessibility Notes: The Roundhouse Community Centre is a wheelchair accessible venue. Transit subsidy available at the registration table. Onsite childcare spots available- please pre-register at 604 879 1386.
