You’re Invited to take the time out of your busy schedule to the Giving Heart Community Feast & Holiday Season Celebration 2019!
Date & Time: November 20, 2019, 3:30-5:30pm Wednesday
Venue: #340/345/350 7000 Minoru Blvd.
Richmond, B.C (Richmond Caring Place)
The Giving Heart Community Feast & Holiday Season Celebration 2019 provides an opportunity for all to come to the table in fellowship, food, music, poetry reading, stories sharing, lucky draw and more.
Approximately 100 seats are prepared for the public to enjoy a traditional Turkey dinner, first come first served; if the 100 seats are taken, anyone showing up at the door are more than welcome to take a plate to go until run out of food.
We have turkeys, roast pig, ham, goose, vegetable, fruits, cakes and desserts.
This event is different from other food drives. We strive to offer more than just hot food on a plate, we actually dine together, enjoy the meal, music, poetry reading and stories sharing. It’s a true feast.
This public event is free to everyone, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, cross-cultural learning and understanding groups, elders and youth, men and women, families and kids (above 5+), rich or poor with slightly special emphasis on inviting area seniors, working class families, military, veterans, immigrants, refugees, people with disabilities, homeless, and those who would otherwise be alone on this holiday season.
The goals of this event are:
Connect people with a wide range of interests, backgrounds and experiences;
Increase Sense of belonging and responsibility to our communities;
Better understanding for groups of people and individuals with variation in race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, exceptionalities, language, religion, geographical area, etc.;
Share knowledge and develop grassroots creativity and leadership skills;
Celebrate diversity and Canadian cultures, traditions, and customs of the world;
Appreciate the professionals and volunteers are delegated in community capacity building.
