If you’re like me, you think that Vancouver’s local food scene plays an important part in sustainability and our food security.
Deciding to support the local food movement and figuring out how best to do it is a tricky step, one that we haven’t fully fathomed yet.
Thursday, October 14, 2010, 7 p.m.
Museum of Vancouver, 1100 Chestnut St, Vancouver
As part of the Museum of Vancouver’s Food & Beers speaker series, David Beers (editor of The Tyee) will be hosting a symposium of local food, titled Can The City Feed Itself? A Recipe For Local Food Success.
Accompanying Beers will be a panel of local food advocates who will share their beliefs about what is essential for a fully functioning local food system:
Meeru Dhalwala, Vij’s Restaurant and cookbook author
Amy Robertson, chair, Farmers Market Society
Ian Walker, president, Left Coast Naturals
Lori Stahlbrand, founder and president, Local Food Plus
After the experts have shared, you will have your chance to speak as well. This is your chance to air your ideas for a tax-break on buying local food, a regulation calling for provenance to be displayed on all meat or a big fence around BC.
Tickets are $15, and include complimentary nibbles and admission into MoV’s Homegrown exhibit on local food, co-presented with FarmFolk/CityFolk.
Whatever your ideas, share them and your enthusiasm on October 14.
