We had a great meeting last week, lots of people turned up! It’s amazing how much we miss each other after no meetings for two months. And what a potluck!

We heard from Jen Casorso from the City of Kamloops about the Green Living Expo coming up on April 29 looking for more groups to reserve booths, from Lindsay Harris (see her presentation below). We also learned more about the Oncore Seniors Society and all of the important work they do to support seniors in the community, and their interest in partnering with other food groups to get seniors eating better! We also heard some exciting news from Gardengate and their new building they got approval for, and that the Farmers’ Market is running again starting Feb 15. Hooray!

Dec 7 Minutes

We had a more relaxing December meeting, with an educational theme of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, or the SDGs. We reflected on the work that the KFPC and its member organizations are doing already, and thought about how we could frame our work inside the SDGs for a more consistent narrative of non-profit work.

Want to learn more about the SDGs? Check out the UN’s website, or this one (it’s a bit easier to read and has great graphics).
