Feeding Groups For Change! 

This training is free for Greenpeace volunteers. Greenpeace Canada is a community partner supporting the Tools For Change workshop project in Toronto

Whether you're attending a meeting, blockade, rally or brainstorming session, having food on hand always helps. Food doesn't only sustain us, it is also a great way to build community. Feeding groups of people can seem daunting, so this workshop will provide thoughtful tricks of the trade to simplify the process. 

We’ll look at the logistics involved in feeding crowds, matching meals to events, creating field kitchens, sourcing affordable and local food, and building cooking crews. This will be an interactive workshop with some hands-on food prep, recipes, and event planning scenarios. Come with an appetite! And please let us know in advance if you have any allergies or requirements (food served will be gluten-free, vegan and nut free).

Date: Friday, June 1
Time: 3PM-5: 30 PM followed by a shared community meal from 5:30-6
Location: 100 McCaul St., Lambert Lounge (room 187) main floor, to left of front door. Look for signs.
Food Allergies?: We will be making/sharing a simple vegan-friendly, gluten and nut free snack. Please let us know if you have any additional allergies or requirements 
Accessibility: We will gather in a barrier-free space. Subway tokens available to attendees by request. 
Questions?: Please write to if you have any questions, requests or food allergies
