Event Description

Every Tuesday and Saturday our volunteers receive food scraps from hundreds of the 45,000 residents in the West End. The take since June 2012 now totals over 50 tonnes of food scraps for composting to be recycled back into growing, also reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Tuesday evenings (October 2, 9, 16, 23) from 6-7:30 pm and Saturday mornings from 10 am - noon, starting October 25 at Gordon Neighbourhood House

Saturday mornings from 10 am - noon at West End Community Centre. (October 7, 14, 21, 28). Also at WE Farmers Market Saturdays through October 18.


October Drop Spots are part of the Sustenance Festival.
