Choi On The Go (COTG) by Annette Cheung, Marielle Wall, and Mischa Price
Choi On The Go (COTG) is a mobile produce service aimed to reconnect low-income Asian seniors back to their cultural foods. They provide easy access to culturally relevant, recycled vegetables at an affordable price - all while sourcing everything from local farmers!
During this event, they are inviting people from all walks of life to support the seniors living in the Downtown Eastside and Chinatown by coming to their stand to learn about Choi (Chinese vegetables) and recycled produce. They will have fresh sustainable choi for sale, choi education pamphlets, and tips on how you can grow your own Chinese garden! With the money raised, they hope to donate it to Yarrow Intergenerational Society to help expand their senior services and continue to help the elders thrive.
