Dig in to the deliciousness of Vancouver’s multicultural, local and sustainable food scene. With accommodations at a chic downtown boutique hotel that supports housing and professional development for Aboriginal artists, the trip begins with a market tour of the famous Granville Island. Come hungry, because over the next two days, you’ll also experience some of the city’s most innovative craft breweries, a tour of the locals' favorite food trucks, and dinner at one of the city’s famed local and sustainable restaurants (choose between Forage, featuring local meat, or the innovative vegetarian restaurant, Acorn). When you're in the mood for a treat, swing by East Van Roasters, a social enterprise that trains and employs marginalized women, for a special treat that includes some of the best organic “bean to bar” chocolate and coffee you may ever taste. With the goal of becoming the “Greenest city in the world” by 2020, Vancouver is at the cutting edge of the local and sustainable food movement. This is the perfect package for all foodies who appreciate fresh produce, local flavors, social enterprise and culinary innovation.
