West End Food Series

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.

Interested in leading a project?

We want you to contribute to the West End Food Series by designing, coordinating and delivering your own food-related project, such as a workshop or event for the community. As a Project Leader, you’ll receive a $200 grant that can go towards buying supplies and an honorarium for your time and hard work.


Your event must meet the three goals outlined above, and be open and free of charge.

We’re looking for events and that are interactive, educational, inclusive, accessible and sustainable, and we’ll work with you to make this a reality.

Never hosted a workshop or event before? No problem! The WEFS planning team will work with you to meet these goals, and support you with promoting your event, finding space, volunteers and other logistics.
