A Harvest For All

A shared loaf of (locally sourced) bread, freshly made dinner fashioned from delicious ingredients from the UBC Farm and 750 UBC community members and friends helped make the epic outdoor Main Mall Harvest Feast a night to remember. The largest and tastiest part of the week-long UBC Ripple Effect initiative coordinated through UBC Sustainability, chefs from UBC and the Alma Mater Society prepared the sustainable, family-style dinner that was set with white linen, gleaming glassware, good weather, and lively music. Sustainability on every level was celebrated and experienced below a great white tent that kept the threat of rain away from the festivities and created an intimate setting for the community feast.
