New Community Food Market in Grandview Park

The Grandview Woodland Food Connection is proud to partner with the Eat It Forward Markets Society (EIFMS) in the establishment of a new community food market in Grandview Park. This market has an explicit food access mandate, ensuring that healthy, nutritious, local and socially-just food is available to community members who are struggling financially to become more food secure.

The Eat it Forward Market table will provide organic food at 30% and 80% discounted rates for lower income residents. Individuals and households that qualify will be issued memberships much like a buying club. As such, the market is helping to provide dignified food access by providing food choice, affordability, and organic quality and helping to ensure that all community members have equal access to good food.

The Eat it Forward market will run weekly on Sundays all year, from 11 am – 6 pm at Grandview Park on Commercial Drive.

SOYL Food Market

This past weekend SOYL (Sustainable Opportunities for Youth leadership) held a food market as part of their summer gardening internship program. Teens from Vancouver schools work in four school gardens over the summer – Britannia, Van Tech, David Thompson, and Churchill where they develop skills and leadership in managing their school gardens. Food sold at the market all was grown in the school gardens. The students raised about $150.

The Grandview Woodland Food Connection is pleased to help support this program and help build youth capacity at Britannia School.





Thank You SPUD

A big thanks to Sustainable Products Urban Delivery or SPUD who have generously helped to support our Britannia Community Kitchens. We have received $250 in organic groceries and produce for 3 community kitchens which has allowed us to have these three community kitchens dinners to be made with all organic ingredients, which is rarely possible with the limited funding available. This past week we cooked African Peanut Soup, Brown Rice & Chickpea Salad, Crustless Spinach Quiche, and Flourless Chocolate Cake with the help of our fantastic kitchen facilitator, Nikoo Boroumand who herself is a certified holistic nutritionist. These kitchens are also diabetic friendly and serve up to 12 families, including children, at each kitchen session.
