Potluck Café

I had a great time shooting some menu items and behind the scenes at Potluck Café & Catering a little while ago. The company is run by Potluck Café Society, whose mission includes employing neighbourhood residents to provide Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside with healthy food.

One of the cooler things they did earlier this year was teaming up with the Food Bank to bake 6,500 loaves of banana bread out of 80 cases of bananas that had been rejected as ‘too ripe’ by a Vancouver retailer and could easily have gone to waste. (You can read the whole story here.) The loaves were long gone by the time of our shoot but I had a tasty time sampling some of my photo subjects.
