Wondering about where your food comes from? Many complex systems converge to provide Vancouver’s food supply, and together we’ll take a look at the journeys food takes to get to our plates.
Please join us for a vegan zero-waste dinner, from Ethical Catering by Lupii Café. Your attendance supports good food initiatives in our community.
Our presenters will share their real-world knowledge of where Vancouver’s food comes from. We’ll put our heads together for a group discussion, and a chance to get to know your neighbours over dinner.

beyond the business card
In the spirit of getting to know one another, we’ll go beyond the business card by sharing everyone’s contact information after the event. We hope this will allow more freedom for people to explore genuine connections in the time we have together at coFood events, and beyond.
