SEEN IN VANCOUVER #323: Tasty Food Porn From The “Farms To Forks” Moveable Feast

Farms To Forks went down over the weekend at PICA. The edible fundraiser, hosted by the CBC’s Margaret Gallagher and Fred Lee, saw diners led through PICA’s many classroom kitchens, scarfing dishes from Bishop’s, West, La Quercia and over a dozen other great restaurants. The proceeds from the night went to Growing Chefs!, an amazing non-profit that supports and encourages the development and growth of urban agriculture and provides avenues for chefs and growers to engage with their communities. Coolest of all, though, is how they bring chefs into our local elementary schools to teach kids about cooking and the importance of knowing where their food comes from (ie. not a Doritos factory). We were sad to have had to miss it, but thankfully our friends from Steamy went down and shot some quick, drool-worthy footage for us.
