Event Description

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

The 1st DISN is  on August 18th. Open to all, this drop-in hosted by Malin & Dan is aimed at neighbours living within 2-3 blocks of 5th and VIne, and will be vegan friendly, with much of the food sourced fresh and locally. Limited to 10 guests. UPDATE: We'll be eating outside on the patio, and can now accommodate several more people. Please RSVP by Saturday evening, so Malin and Dan know how much food to prepare. (21 attended.)

The 1st in a series of 12 plus neighbourhood Drop-in "Spaghetti" Nights hosted by different Kits Villagers and other VVers around Kits and the Westside over the next few months, followed by a community-wide celebration on November 7th. Hosts will provide the meal and track where the ingredients come from, and we'll collate how local our eating habits are and how spaghetti night are helping connect neighbours at the community gathering.

Much of the food will be grown and sourced locally, including from the Kits Village Collaborative Garden and the Thursday Westside Community Food Market. Hosts who want to  "grow their own DISN dinner" can obtain free seeds from the 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 live on the Westside and would like to participate or host a DISN, please RSVP here or send your name and cross-streets to Ross at ross@villagevancouver.ca.
