Tackling Waste in our Food Systems
Ever wonder how you can bring a waste-free lunch to school, how a food store can function without using packages, or how your eating habits can have less impact on the environment? Our next Explorer Day will be a little different than usual – we will take a tour of Nada, a package-free grocery store in east Vancouver. Nada’s mission is to cultivate a better world by inspiring people to change the way they shop for groceries. One of the Nada team members will show us how Nada, and other package free grocery stores, are tackling the waste issue in our food system today. Come with your questions about food and waste! Also, bring a grocery bag or other containers in case you want to shop afterwards.
Meeting location: Nada – Just Foods, 675 East Broadway at Fraser St. (street parking available, mostly on side streets, Bus # 9 and 99.
RSVP here.

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
