The festival runs throughout September until Oct. 19 offering a vast array of free or low-cost family-friendly events and workshops led by community centres and non-profit community groups.
You could learn how to grow micro-greens (to stay super healthy this winter), make delicious mason jar salads, take a Korean cooking class or find out everything you need to know about canning food.
There are also workshops on exploring dried goods and their cultural role in the Chinese Canadian community and a panel discussion exploring cultural perspectives on food waste.
The festival was created by the park board’s arts, culture and engagement Team in 2009 to highlight diverse cultures, art, and histories, as well as celebrate and foster community practices and stories connected to food.
