Eat Think Vote is a non-partisan campaign gathering community members across Canada to speak with federal candidates ahead of the upcoming election. The goal is to make sure that food is an election issue, and that the incoming government develops policy that encourages a food system that is sustainable, where no one goes hungry, and where food is healthy. The focus for this campaign is food security and access to safe, nutritious, sustainably produced and culturally appropriate food.

Eat Think Vote Richmond will give an opportunity for Richmond community members to share their food-related concerns with federal candidates. All are welcome!

Healthy and local snacks will be provided by the Tsawwassen First Nation Farm School.

This event will take place on unceded traditional and ancestral lands of the Coast Salish People including the Musqueam, Tsawwassen, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.​​
