The Outreach Team

Downtown Eastside Kitchen Tables Outreach Team

The DTES Kitchen Tables Outreach Team was hired in January of 2011.  It is comprised of members of the DTES community who are passionate about all aspects of the DTES Kitchen Tables Project and the Right to Food Philosophy.  Under the guidance of the DTES Kitchen Tables Project Manager, they use innovative outreach methods such as Food Street Theatre and Nutritional Food Jeopardy to engage residents in the DTES on nutrition and their Right to Food.  This ripened, seasoned cast of characters can be seen across the neighbourhood dressed as “Broccoli”, “Apple”, “Water” and “Almond” – just to name a few.

To date the DTES Kitchen Tables Outreach Team has participated during programming at the following neighbourhood locations:

– Mission Possible

– Downtown Community Court

– HomeGround 2011

– Homeless Connect 2011

– Oppenheimer Park

– DTES Neighbourhood House

– The Evelyn Saller Centre

– Potluck Cafe & Catering
