About this Event

Join us around the table for a nourishing evening of food and community connection, as we engage in passionate conversations about sustainable food systems and ideas that matter to you.

We encourage you to invite your friends and bring a dish (or non-alcoholic beverage) to share, we will provide the fruit crumble!

More about the Squamish Food Policy Council

Squamish Food Policy Council is a project of Squamish CAN (Climate Action Network) working to create a sustainable food system.

​Our Vision:

Our food system will be economically viable and ecologically sustainable; our community will grow, harvest, process, preserve, and distribute food to all of its members while eliminating waste. A thriving local food culture that celebrates eating locally and eating together will support us in living healthier, happier, and richer lives connected to the land, to growers, and to each other.

​Our Mission:

Ensure that all members of Squamish have access to enough nutritious, safe, ecologically sustainable and culturally appropriate food at all times.

More about On The Table

On The Table is a province-wide initiative of the Vancouver Foundation with the goal of bringing people together over food and drink to talk about ideas that matter them. Each event has a theme to direct the conversation, and notes will be taken to share with the Vancouver Foundation, creating a snapshot of what is on peoples minds across the province.
