The Vancouver Neighbourhood Food Networks are honored to be one of several recipients of this year’s Dinner Party YVR fundraising.
Here’s how it works: Hobby chefs — aka people who love to cook and entertain — host dinner parties across Vancouver in support of their favourite charities. Diners (aka you!) select a meal to attend and have an awesome night out, meeting new friends, and then joining up with all of the other dinner party guests, Hobby Chefs, charity representatives and partners at the after party.
