On World Food Day (October 16, 2019) join the Vancouver community for a screening of the new documentary Six Primrose. Six Primrose tells the story of how food brought a Canadian community together.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Jolene Andrew, Trixie Ling, and Selma van Halder.

For years, the neighbourhood of Dartmouth North has struggled with high rates of food insecurity and isolation. In 2014, the community rallied to build a vibrant Community Food Centre where people come together to grow, cook, share, and advocate for good food for all.

Filmmakers John Hills and Hannah Minzloff of Truefaux Films were there to capture the changes that ensued: a parking lot transforms into a community garden, an empty building fills with the smells and sounds of people making food together, strangers turn into friends, and together, residents start to push for change.

Through the powerful stories of Amanda, Jessica, Charlie, Oras, and Ken, community members who are all struggling in different ways when they walk through the doors of the Dartmouth North Community Food Centre, we see how vibrant spaces and programs can change people’s lives, and contribute to healthier and more equitable communities.

Six Primrose was created by Truefaux Films. This screening is presented by the Vancouver Food Policy Council and Christ Church Cathedral as a part of the City of Vancouver’s Sustenance Festival.
