Hello, Let’s Eat is a pilot project with the goal of bringing neighbours together over the act of sharing food.

Hello, Let’s Eat! is a collaboration between the City of Edmonton’s ‘Hello, How Are You?’ campaign, fresh - Edmonton's Food and Urban Agriculture Strategy, and River City Events

Edmontonians are now able to borrow place settings and food service equipment from River City Events at no cost! We hope to encourage community members to share meals together, in order to get to know one another and learn about what connects us.

Kits are available to community members who wish to host a community or neighbourhood meal. In the spirit of turning strangers into friends, kits are only available for these types of events.  

A kit can support a group up to 24 people. Kits will be limited to 1 rental per organizer for the duration of the pilot.
