Here's a first go at laying out the possible concept, but this will be discussed at Tuesday's meeting:

Hasting Sunrise Cook (s) book

Vision:  Inspire Hastings Sunrise to find about the “small school with the big heart” and engage our community in becoming Garibaldi advocates and promoting “good, local” food.

What: A cookbook featuring Hastings Sunrise restaurant recipes along with features from the Hastings Sunrise community.

Why:  It will instill a sense of pride, togetherness and understanding about Garibaldi and the greater Hastings Sunrise community.

How: The cookbook with feature recipes from participating restaurants, tips for urban gardening with a focus on child friendly foods and activities.

When:  Timeline February until May 2015

Format:  The cookbook will be available in print and possible online content.  

Fundraising goal:  minimum $7000 to Garibaldi Annex or 50% to Garibaldi and 50% to a Hastings Sunrise foundation for good, local food fund or similar or, to be provided to neighbouring schools for sustainable food development.
Promotion:  Local eateries, local media,  Tourism Vancouver, Vancouver foodie tours, MLA and MP, neighbourhood schools within the Hastings Sunrise Catchment.  

Budget: TBD

Printing, binding:

Outcomes: Awareness builder for Garibaldi Annex, community engagement, driver of enrollment, food awareness, food growing…

Design:  The cookbook will have a grassroots feel, what makes the Hastings Sunrise community unique.  The book will feature inspired recipes from local eateries that would appeal to children, have a story or East Van roots.  The book will look like our community in the raw, but will appeal to those living outside the Hastings Sunrise neighbourhood. This will make a great gift for those food enthusiasts, your friends and family in or outside the community.  It will be a great story about why our community is so amazing.


Diner en Blanc at Garibaldi featuring greater community including restaurants, entertainment and families that represent the Garibaldi community.
