Eat Think Vote is a campaign that gathers community members across Canada to speak with federal candidates ahead of the upcoming election. The goal is to make sure food is an election issue, and that the incoming government develops policy that encourages a food system where no one goes hungry, where food is healthy, and systems are sustainable. The focus is food security, while also making room for conversations on other food topics.
On Saturday, October 5, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm join the conversation at Auntie Barb’s Bakery at 217 Cranbrook St N. over appetizers to discuss the food issues that matter to Canadians. This event is being co-hosted by the Cranbrook Food Action Committee and Wildsight Kimberley Cranbrook.
Candidates that will be present at the gathering include incumbent MP Wayne Stetski for the NDP, Conservative representative Rob Morrison, Abra Brynne for the Green Party, Robyn Goldsbury for the Liberal Party and Rick Stewart of the People’s Party.
As food is the focus of conversation, appetizers will be provided to those in attendance. There will be an open floor question period in addition to official questions.
