On the Table Dialogue

Little Mountain Neighbourhood House Invites You to On the Table  at the Long Table next to the Riley Park Community   Garden RSVP 

Join us as we set the table with food harvested from our Riley Park Community Garden to continue our conversations on issues that matter to you and to our community. At our On the Table and Spring conversations you told us that your voices need to be heard on these issues: 

  • Engaging community and building connections 

  • Jobs, skills and economic vitality

  • Social enterprises

  • Social isolation

  • Environment

  • Local arts

  • Improving social services

  • Volunteerism 

  • New ideas? 

Let’s continue the conversation.  RSVP

About Little Mountain Neighbourhood House (LMNH): For over 41 years, Little Mountain Neighbourhood House has worked to connect, engage and empower community members to create a vibrant, inclusive and caring neighbourhood. Through our programs and services, we facilitate social, educational, cultural and recreational programs and initiatives that strengthen neighbourhood life for a diverse group of community members.

About the Event: In its second year, the Vancouver Foundation presents On the Table. Inspiration for the event came from a 2017 report, Connect and Engage, that revealed many residents are feeling disconnected from their community. LMNH is a host this year inviting friends, family, coworkers, and strangers to gather, share food, and talk.
