Some notes from our May VFPC meeting…
The Bread Affair just received their new flour mill recently, allowing them to localize and control the processing of local flour! The Bread Affair is BC’s only certified organic artisan bakery serving Greater Vancouver with ties throughout BC, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. They will be at various Farmers Markets throughout, including Haney Farmers Market (Maple Ridge), Burnaby Farmers Market, and Trout Lake Farmers Market! Yum!
There is a new mobile food market in town! Allowing affordable and fresh produce to areas where people who have difficulty getting nutritious food, the project is critical to the health of the community. Thank you South Granville Seniors Centre and The Westside Food Collaborative for making this happen! How exciting!!
The Society Promoting Environmental Conservation (SPEC) is looking to getting more school gardens into the schools in our community. Wouldn’t it be nice to see some more in our lives? Especially ones like the newly constructed School Farm at Vancouver Technical Secondary School!
Also, look out for a new School Garden opening up at David Thompson Secondary School with the collaboration of Fresh Roots Urban Farm and the Vancouver School Board!
Calling out to all questions that you have about the food system in Vancouver! What do you want to discuss? What topics do you think we should look at? We want to hear from everyone! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
