Indigenous Caterers for Your Feast

Indigenous food trucks, restaurants, hotels, and cultural centres share an experience of food that is inseparable from caring for the wellness of all things. 

Traditional Indigenous diets depend on the health of the land, water, plants, animals, and people. Indigenous ways of caring for, collecting, preparing, and sharing food are all unique to the land they come from.

Indigenous restaurateurs and caterers share these connections and bring thought to food at small and big tables in BC.

Indigenous Food and Reconciliation

Indigenous food trucks, restaurants, hotels, and cultural centres share an experience of food that is inseparable from caring for the wellness of all things. 

Traditional Indigenous diets depend on the health of the land, water, plants, animals, and people. This reciprocal relationship was interrupted in the past when Indigenous peoples were removed from their lands and denied the ability to harvest or consume traditional foods. Indigenous ways of caring for, collecting, preparing, and sharing food are all unique to the land they come from. Indigenous restaurateurs and caterers share these connections and bring thought to food at small and big tables in BC.
