Savour our Neighbourhood 2019

The Mount Pleasant Family Centre Society (MPFCS) invites you to join us for Savour Our Neighbourhood 2019 – our 6th annual fundraising event celebrating local food and drink.

Thursday, March 7th
6:00pm to 9:30pm
at Heritage Hall
3102 Main Street, Vancouver

Savour our Neighbourhood is the cornerstone fundraiser for the Mount Pleasant Family Centre Society.


This year we are featuring the Society’s vital work with refugee and immigrant families. We are thrilled that Savour our Neighbourhood 2019 will be catered by Tayybeh, an award-winning local food company and social enterprise that supports newly arrived Syrian women.

Tayybeh helps Syrian newcomer chefs by offering them a source of income and connecting them with community through the preparation of delicious home-style Syrian culinary specialties.

Enjoy a selection of local beer and wine, fantastic music, auctions, draws and more!

Live entertainment by Vancouver comedian Charlie Demers, nominated for a 2018 Juno for his album Fatherland.

Hosted by local comedian and performer Jo Dworshak.

We hope you’ll join us for this exciting celebration of food, drink and community!
