Six more Kits Village Drop-in "Spaghetti" Nights in January! Community-wide DISN celebration Feb 1

Join us at an upcoming "spaghetti" night.

Share a meal w/neighbours, prepared by a neighbour.

A series of neighbourhood Drop-in "Spaghetti" Nights (DISN's) hosted by Kits Villagers around Kits, followed by a large community-wide DISN celebration at St. Marks on Feb 1. Hosts provide the meal, tracking where ingredients come from, and we'll collate how local our eating habits are at the Feb1 gathering. (They’re called Drop-in “Spaghetti” nights, because many of the ones we've held in past years have involved serving spaghetti, but can involve any foods - e.g., Drop-in Rutabaga Night.)

Open to all, DISN's are especially aimed at neighbours living close to one another (w/in 2-3 blocks of a host). In many cases, ingredients will sourced fresh and locally--e.g., in the summer, ofttimes from the Thurs Westside Community Food Market at 8th/Vine. (VV tables w/the Seed Library and other goodies.)

Organized By: Elaine Hsiao, Janet Coates, Ross Moster, various hosts, and Kits Village.

If you would like to participate in or host a DISN, please RSVP on the event post, or to Ross at
