The GOODS from Forage
Vancouver, BC | Forage is celebrating it’s 5th birthday this year. For the week of November 14th to the 21st we’ll be offering a dinner menu that is full of throwback menu items from when we first opened.
We’ve launched an Instagram contest where our guests can post some of their faves of our dishes over the years with the hashtag #fiveyearsofforage and be entered to win one of 5 prizes of our ‘Festive Family-style lunches for 2’ in December. We’ll be bringing back the ‘Forage Meat Draw’ every night that week at 8pm in Forage.
Over the last five years we’ve:
– donated over $10,000.00 through our water fundraising program. Monies invested in community programs such as Growing Chefs for Urban Agriculture!, Gordon Neighbourhood House, Cheakamus Centre among others.
– supported events like Feast of Fields, Passions, Fraser Common Farm fundraising dinners, Power to Be Fundraiser, Dining out For Life among others.
– hosted amazing wine, distillery, and brewery dinners; working closely with local craft producers.
A whopping third of our front and back of house staff are ORIGINAL, meaning they’ve been with us since day 1!

Forage stands for everything I care about. It represents what I was taught about food preparation both when I was growing up and over the course of my career in the kitchen. To me Forage means that we no longer seek out excess and indulgence, but instead revisit a time when we respected the land and oceans and took only what we needed to survive. It is about being stewards of our land and true conservationists, as we conduct our business and live our lives. It is about goodness, about taking care of each other, and bringing together our community over good food. Our philosophy is a way of life as much as a way of doing business. Saving energy, conserving water, composting and local/responsible purchasing policies all make a positive contribution to our world and our company’s bottom line. Casual, comfortable and affordable, Forage celebrates all things BC. The menu is locally focused in both food and beverage; service is attentive yet never fussy, and its approachable West End location (1300 Robson Street beside The Listel Hotel) makes Forage a local’s locale. It’s an ideal destination for breakfast 7 days a week, brunch on weekends and nightly for drinks and dinner from 4pm.
