See you there!
In July 2017, hua foundation released the “Vancouver Chinatown Food Security Report”, where it was documented that Vancouver’s Chinatown has lost 50% of its fresh food assets since 2009. At this event, the report’s lead author, Angela Ho, will detail her findings and share insights into the impacts these changes have on the neighbourhood.
The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with Andy Yan (SFU City Program Director), Wesley S Regan (City of Vancouver Community Economic Development Planner), and Elvy Del Bianco (Vancity Program Manager for Cooperative Partnerships) to explore ideas on how various stakeholders can play a role to retain and revive these unique spaces where history, culture, food security, local economy, and policy intersects.
