“Have you heard… Some rumours have it… There will be a story about this autumn’s harvest celebrations – you know, the feast, the dancing, the singing that comes right after the tomatoes, the grapes, the hay, and the pumpkins are plucked from the vines and fields… AND… What went wrong… villages destroyed, lives lost, life lessons learned the hard way, journeys took… BUT… in the end, the wylde wisdom dispensed.” – Michael Talbot Kelly
Free event. Soup and Bread and Drinks will be available
Monday, Nov. 11th | 6pm
A Talk About Indigenous Food Sovereignty
We are so excited to be hosting Dawn Morrison for a special evening of conversation around Indigenous Food Security in Canada. Dawn Morrison is the Founder, Chair and Coordinator of the B.C. Food Systems Networking Group on Indigenous Food Sovereignty. In the years away from her ancestral Secwepemc (Shuswap) community, Dawn’s work in various capacities throughout her 20 year long career in Horticulture has kept her in touch with her Indigenous roots through applying an ecological approach to studying and working with plants. Her Secwepemc heritage along with her technical and practical background in horticulture and ethonobotany, as well as her passion for environmental and cultural revitalization lead her to a long lasting career in Aboriginal adult education and community self-development. Free event. Drinks and pizza will be available.
Family Movie Night
Monday, Nov. 18th | 6-7:30pm
Studio Ghibli – Totoro
Join us for another Family Dinner and a Movie night!
This acclaimed animated tale by director Hayao Miyazaki follows schoolgirl Satsuke and her younger sister, Mei, as they settle into an old country house with their father and wait for their mother to recover from an illness in an area hospital. As the sisters explore their new home, they encounter and befriend playful spirits in their house and the nearby forest, most notably the massive cuddly creature known as Totoro. Free event. Drinks and our beloved sourdough pizza will be available.
Farm to Table, Farm to Bottle

Join us for our last Farm to Bottle Event of 2019!
Each month we collaborate with That’s Life Gourmet to feature Sakes or Wines from their portfolio for a unique six course food pairing dinner.

ABOUT UBUNTU CANTEEN | Located in the heart of Vancouver’s burgeoning Fraserhood district, Ubuntu Canteen is the latest project for David Gunawan, the locavore-focused chef behind such notable and award-winning Vancouver restaurants as Farmer’s Apprentice and Grapes & Soda. Deriving its name from a Zulu word meaning ‘compassion’ and ‘humanity’, Ubuntu Canteen is a conscious and future-focused restaurant, bakery and coffee shop that provides a space where friends and families of all ages can gather together to break bread, share stories and build a strong sense of community. By day, Unbuntu offers a bakery that prepares organic pastries, fresh sourdough loaves and lighter fare comprising ingredients grown by its family network of local farmers and a full-service espresso bar using locally roasted, ethically sourced beans. By night, Ubuntu dims the lights, plays records and serves up a variety of approachable-yet-elevated dishes and fresh nightly features such as house-made pasta, rotisserie chicken and local seafood paired with house-made cocktails, biodynamic and natural wine and a rotating selection of some of BC’s best craft beer.
