Taste The Flavours Of The World On June 24th At UBC Farm’s ‘Joy Of Feeding’


On June 24th, UBC Farm will once again be converted into an international picnic for the 6th annual Joy of Feeding fundraiser. The singular culinary event – created by Vij’s and Rangoli chef/co-owner Meeru Dhalwala – is a multicultural smorgasbord prepared by 13 Vancouver home cooks who will be sharing their cherished family recipes. This year’s represented heritages are Brazil, Cameroon, Canada, Chinese-Jamaican, Colombia, England, India (Goa), Indonesia, Iran, Portugal, Russian-Korean, Syria and Trinidad & Tobago. While you treat your tastebuds to this gastronomical world tour you can wash it all down with a selection of local beer and wine. The day also consists of guided farm tours, children’s activities and an assortment of food-related educational booths. Not only is the event an opportunity to expand your palate in a positive and beautiful communal environment, but by attending you’ll also be contributing to the UBC’s Centre for Sustainable Food Systems program and the future of food security. So grab your tickets before they sell out and get ready to rack up some serious foodie points, eating delicious food for a good cause!
