Event Description

Share a free meal with neighbours, prepared by a neighbour. Last year, almost 200 people participated at several spaghetti nights and the community-wide celebration.

Our next DISN is on Saturday, February 28th. Hosted by Laura Lee and Ross, this meal is aimed at neighbours living within 2-3 blocks of Cornwall and Maple, but is open to all. Laura Lee and Ross will cook a meal, which will incorporate freshly harvested) veggies from the Kits Village Vancouver Collaborative Garden (grown from seeds from a KV seed library.) Yum!

Please RSVP. There's room for 14 neighbours.

Different Kits Villagers and other VVers around the Westside will host several spaghetti nights in the upcoming weeks and months, culminating in a  community-wide celebration. Anyone can host and participate, and hosts (who live west of Granville, on Vancouver's Westside) are eligible to receive $5/person for meal costs. Hosts track where the ingredients come from, and we collate how local our eating habits are and how spaghetti nights help connect neighbours, and report on our findings at the community gathering.

Much of the food will be grown and sourced locally. Hosts who wanting to "grow their own DISN dinner" can always obtain free seeds from a KV Seed library, and then can recycle any plastic containers at the monthly Kits Village Plastic Recycling Depots, and compost the food scraps at the KV garden or take them to one of our weekly food scrap drops spots.

By the way, they’re called Drop-in “Spaghetti” nights, because many of the ones we've held in the past have involved serving spaghetti, but they can really involve any foods - for instance, Drop-in Rutabaga Night.

If you would like to participate in or host a DISN, please send your name and cross-streets to Ross at


Westside DISN's are supported by a Green Neighbourhood Small Grant from the Vancouver Foundation and the City of Vancouver, administered by Kits Neighbourhood House.
