Hey passionate people!
Hope you’ve had great weeks in 2013 so far! I can only say that this is very much true for the Passion team. We’ve been incredibly busy lately, meeting and chatting almost three times a week about food, food and more food!
On March 7th, we’re holding our BIG FOOD event of the semester.
We’d love to have you involved in the event!
Do you like cooking?
Do you like searching online recipes from exotic, foreign places?
Do you like eating sustainably, locally?
Are you an advocate for vegetarianism?
Do you like eating? (oh don’t lie….)
We’re looking representatives from student clubs to make teams of 3-4 people.
We’ll work with you to create a sustainable recipe from a region of the world, help you cook the recipe, document the process, and share the experience!
On the quest to be more sustainable in our daily life, who said we couldn’t have fun in the process?
Interested? Have more questions?

The Passion Team
When the new semester starts on Jan 2nd.
Anyways, stay un-deterred my friends!
Here are some weapons- I mean strategies to win the battle UBC has gotten us into:
1. Marbelous Cookie - Yes, I am serious.
2. Do your readings.
3. Visit profs’ office hours.
4. Have enough sleep. You don’t want to get sick- not with vicious flu viruses going rampant.
6. And, have a balanced diet.
Desserts are a must.
It is not inequalities that kill people, it is those who are responsible for these inequalities that kill people.
Vicente Navarro (Dr. Dharamsi’s presentation on Food as a Basic Human Right)
It was an amazing day.
From global perspectives to local initiatives in Vancouver and on campus, the conference brought together people with different skills and specialties but with same passion- FOOD.
Our morning session was filled with amazing speakers who advocated for individual awareness regarding food issues and our afternoon session was just so brilliant as many awesome ideas were hatched during the interactive panels’ session composed of representatives from local initiatives in Vancouver and in UBC.
A $50 voucher was given to the team who came up with the most innovative and realistic idea to promote sustainability on campus! Stay tuned for more updates on how the team turns their idea into actions!
As for those who filled in the feedback forms, stay in touch to know which one of you will be sitting on the judges’ panel for our next project- the UBC Iron Chef Challenge!
Also, I had the chance to quickly go over the feedback forms and voila! People wrote that they learned a lot and had much fun
I guess the quote above sums up the message of our conference quite neatly.
Act upon your awareness, passionate ones
