As part of the City of Vancouver’s 10th anniversary Sustenance Festival, that celebrates food, art, and culture in the community, Flavours of Hope and Grandview Woodland Food Connection are collaborating together to host a “Sharing Food, Sharing Culture” event on Saturday, October 19 from 3:30pm to 5:30pm at the Canucks Family Education Centre in East Vancouver.

Come and learn from three remarkable newcomer women chefs from Venezuela, Philippines, and Saudi Arabia, who will share their favourite family recipes and stories of migration through the lens of food.

We will have three cooking stations to make some traditional sweet and savoury appetizers from different cultures. Participants will help to prepare the food and hear stories behind the dishes from the women chefs. We will share food together in a long-table style after cooking and discuss about the role of food in experiencing belonging and identity in the community.

Ticket for this community food event is $10 each, but no one will be turned away at the door. Please email Trixie at [email protected] or Ian at [email protected] for more information or questions.
