If you could talk to the next federal government about food in your community, what would you say?
Eat Think Vote is a campaign that gathers community members across Canada to speak with federal candidates ahead of the upcoming election. Our goal is to make sure that food is an election issue, and that the incoming government develops policy that encourages a food system that is sustainable, where no one goes hungry, and where food is healthy. The focus for this campaign is food security and access to safe, nutritous, and culturally appropriate food.
The 2019 Eat Think Vote at Kitsilano Neighbourhood House provides the opportunity for Vancouver-Quadra community members to share their food-related concerns with federal candidates. All are welcome!
Healthy and local snacks will be provided by the UBC Farm.

The event intends on making space for and centering voices that are underrepresented or marginalized in food policy discussions, notably Indigenous, people of colour, people with lived experience of food insecurity or poverty, people living with disabilities, etc.
Kitsilano Neighbourhood House is located on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.
