Women and Food: A Vancouver Historical Perspective

Tuesday October 26, 7 PM to 8.30 PM @Vancouver City Hall. 12th & Cambie, Council Chambers (3rd floor)

Women of diverse backgrounds have long played an important role in the history of food in Vancouver. Though their contributions have not always been recognized, women have had an integral role in shaping local businesses, workplaces, industries, families, and ethno-cultural communities through the cultivation, production, distribution, preservation, and sharing of food and cuisine.

Guest speakers:

  • Meeru Dhalwala (Vij’s-Women and Indian Cuisine),
  • Cease Wyss (A First Nation’s Perspective),
  • Tracey McDougall (Hogan’s Alleys Vie’s Chicken and Steak House),
  • Edith Tuner (Gulf of Georgia Cannery: Women and Cannery Work),
  • Shirley Chan (Eating Stories: Laying It All on the Table),
  • Devorah Kahn (Women and Farmers Markets) and
  • Councillor Andrea Reimer
