Gordon Neighbourhood House is excited to present the West End Food Series, a year-round series of seasonal workshops and events that celebrate food and community. Events take place in the West End neighbourhood but are open to everyone in the community.
Our main focus is to:
1) Bring public attention to various issues and concerns in our food system
2) Use food as a mechanism to foster social inclusion and community building
3) Facilitate skill development in areas like urban farming and food preparation
We’re going seasonal!
From 2013-2017, Gordon House organized a highly successful week-long Food Festival every September. Last year, we received many requests for more ongoing opportunities to connect over food. This is why for 2018, we’re changing the format to offer year-round seasonal events, under the new name West End Food Series!
All events and workshops are still free and open to the public and led by individuals or organizations in the community who can receive $200 for supplies and an honorarium.
Join us for some food fun! Sign up to receive updates about the next event:
