RAVEN - Respecting Aboriginal Values and Environmental Needs

Earth Day with Bandidas!

Aiyana and her amazing team at Bandidas ride again! This Earth Day, the beloved East Van eatery is holding an all-day festival in support of Indigenous justice. Come on down to this famed Commercial Drive eatery on Sunday, April 22nd and enjoy incredible food, great people and a fabulous atmosphere: all for justice!

Says Aiyana, “So far the event looks like it will be quite lively.  The cafe will have a full line-up of events out front on the sidewalk during the day – our Earth Day sidewalk festival.  We are really looking forward to this event. It has become a highlight of the year for us!”
Here are the details of the day:
  • This year, we have partnered with 4 local schools to produce an art show where students make art around Earth Day themes. The art show will be hung the weekend of Earth Day.
  • Bandidas will donate 100% of our profits for sales of the entire day.
  • The donation will go to RAVEN’s Heiltsuk “Stand up for Coast Heroes” campaign
  • Victory Gardens will set up a gardening booth on the sidewalk from 10:00 to 2:00 – selling plants, seeds, seedlings, and some small gardening tools. They will be donating proceeds to The Classroom Gardner.
  • Earnest Ice Cream will be out front with their scoop truck parked on the street from around 11:00 to 1:30ish. They will be donating 100% of their sales along side Bandidas to RAVEN.
  • We will have sidewalk chalk for kids (or adults)
  • Check out last year’s event here on our website.
