LOCAL FOOD. LOCAL TALK. GLOBAL MOVEMENT.
Calling all foodies, entrepreneurs, changemakers, creatives, influencers, activists, artists and generally awe-inspiring folks!
The Feast Worldwide is a day of global dinner parties in 40+ cities across 6 continents. The goal? To spark collaboration that drives local entrepreneurs and social initiatives forward. More information at feastongood.com/worldwide
On October 18, we're inviting Vancouver to envision, "PROGRESSION: A world where growing and eating healthy food connects people." Come dine with us + join the conversation!
The idea is simple. Come for an interactive dinner that explores connections between food, community, technology, sustainability, business, health, design, and more! We're inviting incredible entrepreneurs to share their work to inspire greater discovery and ideas. Let's sit together over dinner - and instead of talking about problems, talk about ways to support each other, collaborate, and make things work a tiny bit better.
This dinner is about connecting with each other over a simple meal and weighing into a global problem solving session. It’s a movement to get full on good.
Tickets cover delicious local food at a beautiful venue, inspiring speakers, and new connections. Proceeds will be donated to Mealshare to feed others in need.
Special Deals: Student and Group Admissions Available!
