How better to enjoy great food with a good conscious then to  pair Vancouver’s  socially conscious Forage restaurant with  the revolutionary VFM vendor Sole Food Street Farms.

Forage restaurant loves creating community and quality farm to table fare to share:

“Forage means that we no longer seek out excess and indulgence, but instead revisit a time when we respected the land and oceans and took only what we needed to survive. It is about being stewards of our land and true conservationists, as we conduct our business and live our lives. It is about goodness, about taking care of each other, and bringing together our community over good food. “—Chris Whittaker, Head Chef – Forage

Solefood transforms empty urban land into productive urban farms and empowers individuals with limited resources by providing employment, education and the opportunity to be part of a  community of farmers- a revolutionary approach to sustenance.

We can’t wait to share the good karma and great appetizer this pair will create for RIPE 2014.

RIPE 2014 is the 5th annual dinner fundraiser of Vancouver Farmers Markets. Early bird tickets are $65 before September 15th. After September 15th, tickets are $75 for adults and $15 for children.
