Stay tuned! We’re planning workshops and a conference for Fall 2018 and Winter 2019.

We coordinate a “community of practice” among faith-based and secular providers of charitable food across Vancouver and nearby municipalities, who collectively serve ~1,000 meals per week. This takes the form of tailored consulting, invitational roundtables, and workshops on topics such as

  • nutrition assessment and menu planning
  • recruiting and training passive “clients” to take active roles in the design and implementation of programs
  • Foodsafe certification
  • consensus standards of food quality and program success
  • methods of program evaluation
  • the continuum of responses to hunger within a sustainable local food system
  • canning and gardening
  • theology of food, spirituality of Christian hospitality.

Every year, scores of organizations and hundreds of people participate in these. All of our seminars are structured to include low-income participants of the organizations we’re reaching.
