Britannia Warm Plates Community Kitchen

 

Join Britannia elders in a new drop-in community kitchen project with a “food recovery” focus – cooking nutritious, sugar free meals with cosmetically inferior food that might otherwise go to waste.

All are welcome. Bring containers to take food home. Cooking will be at the Britannia Seniors Centre in East Vancouver.

For information, drop-in dates and times, call 604 718-5895.

Weekly Food Hub at Gordon Neighbourhood House

 

On Friday, February 26th, DABC had an information table at Gordon Neighbourhood House’s (GNH) regular Food Hub. Every Friday morning, except for cheque week, GNH hosts the Food Bank at its site in the West End of Vancouver. Upstairs, free soup and coffee are prepared and served by community volunteers. As part of the Food Hub they also have fresh produce for sale at reduced prices from what you would pay at the grocery store.

I had the chance to talk with people with disabilities and seniors about DABC programs and about our upcoming Let’s Talk Food Access free workshop at Gordon Neighbourhood House on March 17th, from 12-3 PM.
