On June 30, 2016 at 7PM at Gordon Neighbourhood House, a community organization in Vancouver's West End, launches the first in a series of Vancouver Food Conversations. For the first Vancouver Food Conversation Gordon Neighbourhood House has partnered with Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House, Heartwood Community Café, The Museum of Vancouver and the hua foundation. Attendance is free and children are welcome (play area). Media Release (06/29/2016) Coast Salish Territory - Organizers of the first Vancouver Food Conversation "acknowledge that the event takes place on the unceded, occupied, ancestral and traditional lands of the Musqueam, Skxwú7mesh, and Tsleil-Waututh nations. We encourage attendees to reflect on the historical and ongoing colonial genocide against Indigenous peoples."

The conversation will build on the one initiated at the recent Vancouver Food Summit, held on May 19, 2016 at Gordon Neighbourhood House. This Vancouver Food Conversations will be moderated by Lily Grewal and will focus on two initial questions: Why is the food movement so white? And what's with the ethnic aisle? The panelists include: Niki Sharma, Kevin Huang, Alejandra Lopez, Jason E. Blackman-Wulff and Stephanie Lim.

"This is an essential conversations to be having if we are to truly work together to create a just, sustainable and inclusive food movement in Vancouver. The dynamic and thoughtful panel assembled for the launch of the Vancouver Food Conversation series will undoubtedly provoke a great deal of thought and reflection", says Chantille Viaud, Gordon Neighbourhood House's Director of Community Food Initiatives.
