Action Evenings presents:

Changing From Food Charity to Food Dignity.

Guest speaker: Ian Marcuse, Food Network coordinator for the Grandview Woodland Food Connection

Wednesday, September 16, 7:00-8:00pm. Please arrive early in order to be admitted through the waiting room.

The Grandview Woodland Food Connection (GWFC)   is dedicated to promoting an accessible, just, and sustainable food system for the community.  It offers a wide breadth of community food security programming . information-sharing, and  grassroots initiatives to address food security and justice issues. 

Ian Marcuse  has been the food network coordinator for the GWFC (part of the Vancouver Neighbourhood Food Network) for 12 years.

“This pandemic has not affected us equitably,” Ian says. “Indigenous, Black, people of colour, women, young workers, trans people, folks with disabilities, and the elderly are more likely to be grappling with poverty, prejudice, stress and systemic discrimination.”

For Ian, respect and gratitude toward all the people he works with is paramount, especially with acknowledgment and redress to First Nations. He collaboratively practices a decolonization and a land-based approach to food security, as well as place-based thinking, while upholding a strong networked model of organizing.
