On the First Monday of Every month the Feasting for Change group has a 2 hour meeting to share, discuss and explore what is happening the the communities around food. The meeting is held at the Victoria Native Friendship Centre from 2-4 on the First Mondays of each month. The summer months have caused us to be flexible as many stat holidays happen on those days.
We come together and talk about ideas, funding and opportunities. At our last meeting we talked about some exciting new ideas like celebrating the Gorge water way education centre with a feast and pit cook lead by Earl Claxton JR and his wonderful students Raven, Josh and Thomas. We also make teas from dried medinices and plants we collected from our trip to Quadra. It was wonderful.
We are having a special September meeting on the 14th from 1-4 at the VNFC and great supported and visionary Danella Parks from Vancity is coming to chat with us about Social Enterprise and how viewing community work from this lens can help support communities in a great way. Anyone welcome just let us know.
Each meeting, Carrie Pollard the HEAL worker and kitchen coordinator for the friendship centre makes us some healthy local goodies.
