Food4Thought 5.0 is coming up on September 20th and we can't wait. We're transforming an Elementary School Gym into one of Vancouver's finest restaurants for this special occasion. Featuring live music and a five-course menu inspired by childhood classics prepared by five of Vancouver's top chefs: Juno Kim, Kris Barnholden, David Robertson, Josh Gale and Kate Horsman. This night of generosity and fantastic fare is in support of Backpack Buddies' programs which addresses a very real need in Vancouver by bridging the weekend hunger gap for children in need in the city's inner-city schools.

Kate Horsman 

As the saying goes, “eat dessert first”! So that’s where we’ll start too, with Kate Horsman. Kate, a nutritionist who takes a mindful approach to the food she creates, will be preparing a playful and inspired dessert to cap off the meal. Her passion for Backpack Buddies stems from wanting to help spread the word that there are children in our own backyards that don’t have enough to eat and who are in need our support.


Josh Gale 

Josh Gale, executive chef at Nicli Pizzeria, has a love and overwhelming passion for food, cooking, and incredible ingredients that will ensure the evening’s first of five courses is fun, whimsical and delicious. He plans to take attendees on a ‘trip down food memory lane’ with a gourmet dish inspired by grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. Josh’s support of Backpack Buddies comes from his knowledge of how good food can positively influence children’s health and lives so they can focus on learning and just being kids.
