The Comox Valley Food Round Table is in planning mode for the Comox Valley World Food Week celebration.
This week of events is held to raise awareness of food issues both locally and internationally and acknowledge the United Nations World Food Day on October 16.
This year we will be celebrating diversity and supporting our small farmers. We are currently looking for organizations and volunteers to help with events or put on an event of their own. We will also be looking for donations of food for the Community Feast. If you would like to help please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org or 250-331-0152.
