602 W. Hastings St. #408
Vancouver, BC V6A 1R1 Canada
Learn how the global food system impacts the environment, our health, and the quality of life of people around the world.
Where does our food come from and why does it matter? This workshop addresses the globalization of the food industry and how food-related policies affect the lives of both food producers and us as consumers! Participants will learn how to take action to create food justice in their communities.
How are minimum wage and corporate power related to income inequality? Find out how a growing income gap perpetuates poverty.
Canada’s official wealth is growing, but so is poverty: Why do the rich keep getting richer and the poor keep getting poorer? From minimum wage to corporate power, learn about the roots of poverty and how it affects us in BC. We explore practical ideas and realistic solutions for poverty elimination.
The GVFB workshops supports community organizers and facilitators in their roles. If you work in a community kitchen, food bank, meal program or are coordinating workshops in your community, this workshop is perfect for you.
