World Food Day Celebration at Richmond Cultural Centre
RICHMOND, BC – The Richmond Food Security Society, Richmond Public Library, the Richmond Museum and Cinevolution are pleased to host the 8th annual World Food Day Celebration on Sunday, October 14th from 12:00 – 4:00 pm. Members of the public are invited to visit the various booths including the seed library and children’s activities on the main floor of the library, view films on the second floor, try out food samples and meet local food producers at the pocket market in the plaza and attend hands on exhibits like butter churning in the Richmond Museum. All of these informative activities will take place at the Cultural Centre, located at 7700 Minoru Gate.
“People of all ages can learn about hunger, food production and distribution and achievements in food and agricultural development both locally and globally through interactive exhibits” says Colin Dring, Coordinator of Richmond Food Security Society.
World Food Day is celebrated internationally and was launched by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations in 1979. This year’s theme is ‘Agricultural Co-operatives- key to feeding the world’.
For the last 8 years, the Richmond Food Security Society has spearheaded the World Food Day Celebration in Richmond. This year’s partners are Cinevolution, the Richmond Museum and Richmond Public Library.
