We are hosting a reusable bag drive for the Tenth Avenue Community Food Market! On January 1, 2022, the City of Vancouver issued a plastic bag ban. Though the Market is considered an essential service, and therefore exempt from this by-law, we still want to do our part in reducing single-use items.
Sustainability and creation care is important to Tenth Church. God is the creator of Earth, and we have a responsibility, as people living on Earth, to care for creation. For the Market, we hope to encourage guests to bring their own bag and to provide reusable bags for those without. We invite you to join us as we work towards being good stewards of creation.

We are collecting bags this Sunday April 23, and next Sunday April 30. To drop off your donation, look for the collection bin at the welcome table.
