Hi Class!

I am so happy that I get to write the “first blog post”. I am writing this to inform everyone about upcoming Real Food Valentine’s Day Dinner. As I have mentioned in day 1, I am a part of student organization on campus called Real Food BC. Real Food BC is chapter of a national organization with three components: cooking, gardening, and activism. Although the national organization focuses more on the activism part, BC’s version of Real Food really tries to incorporate all 3 components. To reflect such spirit of the organization, we hold Valentine’s Day dinner and Thanksgiving dinner every year to share our love and appreciation for food. The food prepared are mostly vegan, seasonal, and sustainable. However, there are some humanely raised meat as well. Following are the menu items from last dinner we had, which was the Thanksgiving dinner:

Sun dried Tomato and Butternut Squash Soup,
“Apple Cracker” Cheese and Crackers,
Baked brie with cranberries,
Quinoa Stuffing,
Chipotle mashed sweet potatoes,
Harvest Kale Salad,
Acorn Squash Dish,
Make your own “pilgrim” sandwiches ,
Spaghetti Squash “Pasta” Salad,
Chocolate zucchini,
Pumpkin Pie,
Apple Pie,
Banana bread muffin,
Apple Cider,

and more


We had over 100 people joining us to celebrate (technically “Eat, Drink, and be Thankful,” according to the title) and it was a great dinner. This year, in February, we are going to have another dinner that is Valentine’s themed, and I wish some of you who are interested could join us to celebrate. After all, it’s pretty good free food.


Let me know if you would be interested in attending so I can update with more info as the date approaches.
