Christopher Porter and Emily Beam
We are a married couple living in Southeast False Creek who are passionate about a number of environmental and social justice causes including addressing climate change, improving cycling infrastructure, and reducing poverty. We live a pretty simple lifestyle, but do enjoy splurging on food. We’re both vegan and buy local, organic food whenever possible. We joined the Welfare Food Challenge as an opportunity to help raise awareness about BC’s ridiculously low welfare rates. We hope the experience is more than just an exercise in self-sacrifice but also an opportunity to reconnect with simple, homemade food.
