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 Sunday, November 16th. Hosted by Tiva, this meal is aimed at neighbours living within 2-3 blocks of York and Larch, but is open to all. Tiva will cook a meal with vegetarian and non-vegetarian options, including veggies from the Kits Village Vancouver Collaborative Garden. Yum!
Please RSVP. There's room for 14 people. UPDATE: 12 confirmed and currently room for 2 more.
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. 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 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 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 in or host a DISN, please send your name and cross-streets to Ross at firstname.lastname@example.org.
