Event Description

Hope you can make it out to Richmond for a great talk & some amazing food.


Arzeena Hamir MSc. P.Ag.
Richmond Food Security Society


Purchasing food in quantity & dividing it amongst friends & family is one way to combat the recent spike in food prices. Ross Moster, founder of Village Vancouver, will speak on food buying co-ops.

Ross has been involved with food co-ops since the 1970's. He managed an organic co-op grocery in Venice Beach, California for 20 years & served on the boards of various statewide co-operatives. He sits on the board of NOW BC Co-op & is a member of  the Vancouver Food Policy Council.

Family-friendly  potlucks take place on 1st Fridays. Bring a favourite dish to share.

Evening hosted by Richmond Food Security Society along  w/ Richmond Fruit Tree Sharing Project &  Richmond Farm School. Members of each organization will be on hand to meet community members and answer questions about food projects in Richmond. Cutlery, bowls & plates will be provided & a microwave is available.
