Event Description

The Westside Food Security Collaborative and Kitsilano Neighbourhood House invite you to a vegetarian potluck (please bring a dish to share if you can) on August 3, 6-8 pm at the Neighbourhood House Hall, 2305 West 7th at Vine. If you grow it, eat it, sell it, make it, serve it, throw it (or just plain love it) please join us. The evening will be an open space; come talk about what's important to you about food on the west side with others who share your passion as we build a west side "kitchen table". We will have graphic recording, a children's table, and opportunities to learn about and get involved with the Westside Food Security Collaborative. All are welcome whether you work, play, study, volunteer, visit, or live on the west side.

I can't be there, but some of our "Nest Builders" (environmental art project for Kits Open House August 27) will be there checking out the space for our installation.

Hi Julia,

It would be great to have you at the kitchen table, especially as someone who raises food on the west side. I'm sorry you feel like you're being left out, I am assuming because it is a vegetarian potluck?


The neighbourhood house does all their potlucks as vegetarian (which doesn't exclude eggs). I am not 100% why but my best guesses are that it is either a) because of the regulations around their commercial kitchen and/or b) to accomodate different religious groups in the neighbourhood who might have certain dietary restrictions related to meat. I will make a point of asking the folks at the NH.


If you want to chat further please feel free to contact me (info in the event post) but the table really is open to everyone and anyone and I feel it would be an incredible asset to have you there as a west side farmer.

Too bad you don't want any meat at the kitchen table. As a local farmer and meat and egg producer, it is always disappointing to be left out of these things.
