Coming Home – Share your Family Food Stories  

Orange and green banner with title Coming Home

Coming Home: Family Food Stories Project, presented by Urban Bounty and UBC INSTRCC, is an opportunity for Richmond-based folks to explore their memories and heritage through sharing stories of cooking and eating food with others in their community! Advance registration is required for this FREE program, which takes place in May and July 2023 at the Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site in Steveston BC.

Think back to the foods that you ate during your childhood, to your holiday dinners or to the little treats that cheered you up. Do you remember those moments gathered around the dinner table with your loved ones? What dishes warmed your bellies in the cold winter evenings, and which foods lessen your sadness on bad days? When you come home after a long day at school or at work, what do you crave? There are so many different types of food in the world, and so many ways to enjoy it!

Share those memories, and create new ones with newfound friends on select Saturdays 1-3 pm. Sessions will be held on May 13, 20, 27 and July 8, 15, 22, 29, and while attendance at every meeting is highly encouraged, participants can also attend whichever sessions work with their schedule.

This program is hosted by Urban Bounty, a group dedicated to creating a more food secure and sustainable community and UBC INSTRCC, the Initiative for Student Research in Chinese Canadian Studies, which  seeks to preserve historical Canadian stories for future generations.
