    This month, we are excited to highlight the work of our network member, Gordon Neighbourhood House in the West End neighbourhood.

    Last year, farmer and community programmer Joey Liu led a team of 45 volunteers to grow and harvest over 350 lbs of produce for Gordon Neighbourhood House.

    Gordon Neighbourhood House’s food philosophy includes “working toward increased access to food for those who are nutritionally vulnerable and sharing fresh, non-expired, healthy, and locally-sourced food whenever possible.”

    Their harvests included a wide range of veggies, including bok choy, tomatoes, garlic, zucchini, salad greens, beets, broccoli, beans, peas, leeks, turnips, kale, kohlrabi, basil, and cucumbers.

    These fresh vegetables supplemented Gordon House’s community lunch program, which serves healthy and affordable meals, for only $5 or pay what you can.
