Neighbourhood Food Network In West End? Thursday, May 12, 6-9pm at West End Community Centre

 
We cordially invite you to a follow-up meeting about food growing, food security, and sustainability in the West End of Vancouver. There will be further discussions about the potential for a neighbourhood food network here.
 
“Food Growing, Security and Sustainability: A Neighbourhood Food Network in the West End?” Potluck and discussion May 12 (Thursday) West End Community Centre 870 Denman Street  6 pm: Potluck dinner 7 to 9 pm: Discussion Cost: Free. Registration: Not required, but we welcome an e-mail to FoodWestEnd@gmail.com so we can prepare. Anyone is welcome.
 
This event follows a successful meeting on April 9, entitled “Building a Neighbourhood Food Network in the West End.” The notes and presentation materials of that meeting will be available by this weekend on the websites of Village Vancouver and Green Millennium Foundation (see below). The discussion in April showed that many people are interested in these topics, are already active, and have considerable knowledge, resources and enthusiasm. On May 12 we will discuss some of the ideas that arose, future actions, and look for people and groups willing to get involved in building momentum. 
 
Organized by: Village Vancouver (http://www.villagevancouver.ca/group/westendtransitionvillage) Green Millennium Foundation (www.greenmillennium.org)
 
(We thank the Vancouver Food Policy Council (www.vancouverfoodpolicycouncil.ca) and West End Community Centre Association for their cooperation.)
