The Save On Meat’s kitchen is home to @abetterlifevan daily meal program, #PlentyofPlates events and legendary #Gre#GreasySpoonDiner supper series. • This year has seen an inimitable selection of skill, talent and tradition come through the pass from chefs that happen to be female. • For the 44th volume of our #GreasySpoonDiner, we excitedly welcome Lauraleigh Paul Yuxweluptun’aat, owner and chef of @bigheartbannock. • An indigenous descendant of Coast Salish, Interior Salish, and Carrier Nations, she advocates for Indigenous food sovereignty and cultural autonomy through her food and her ancestral teachings. Through her lifetime, she has experienced the highs and lows of being a Canadian Indigenous person; poverty and intergenerational trauma always being a prominent factor, but it was her culture, her connection with the teachings of of land and water that sustained her. It was becoming a mother that motivated her to share her ancestral teachings with many of how the flora and fauna of this beautiful Unceded Coast Salish territory can benefit our well being, and how wild foods nourish us with their resilience. • Join us for an evening of indigenous food Monday October 22nd at @saveonmeats. Tickets available via abetteifefoundation.ca & greasyspoondiner.com • #beinghungrysucks ❤️

From alt drag performance to butcher shop turned sustainable plant-based craft beer tasting room, Save On Meats tries to offer something for everyone. • Partnered with @abetterlifevan and teams of community volunteers, Save On Meats is now home to a growing DTES staple: the #PlentyofPlates dinner. Offering a hands-on community-building experience that makes a meaningful and real difference for our neighbours in the Downtown Eastside, volunteers prepare, cook, serve, and clean a complete 3-course dinner to those who rarely, if ever get a sit-down meal. This Monday, the legend, the man Chi Pig came through to get a warm, nutritious meal and snap a portrait under his portrait. Good to see you buddy! @snfu_ofishal • 📸 c/o @ianazariah

HAPPY 3 YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH SAVE ON MEATS JUSTIN! 🎈 🎈 🎈 Justin came to us through a two month long, provincial program called Step To Work which provides basic training and life skills for inner city at risk youth. He came to us a little shy, but wanted to learn and was extremely well mannered. He went back to school and worked weekends, but during the summer, was on the line hammering out burgers and brunch full time. The progression in this young man’s confidence, demeanour and work ethic has been such a pleasure to watch. Not too long ago Justin was a timid young man and has since grown into a hard working, respectful and skilled young man. Justin, let’s celebrate his anniversary properly. 3 years baby!!! 🍔🍟⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️💯
