MoveUP Celebrates Mid-Autumn Festival with Mooncakes – Order Yours Now!

September 5, 2018

To: All MoveUP members in the lower mainland

The deadline to order mooncakes has been extended to Friday, September 7.

For over 3,000 years, cultures including Chinese, Taiwanese, Japanese and Korean have celebrated the mid-autumn festival which honours the harvest moon. The annual celebration is continued today by many Canadians with those cultural backgrounds.

Traditionally, the Chinese version of the mid-autumn festival – also known as the Mooncake Festival – involves carrying brightly-lit lanterns and eating mooncakes, which are small, round pastries with a sweet filling.

Continuing with past practice, the MoveUP Human Rights & Multicultural Committee shares this tradition with our members by distributing mooncakes at many of our Lower Mainland worksites.

This year the Festival falls on Monday, September 24.

If you are a job steward, councillor or distributor who is interested in participating by helping in the distribution of mooncakes at your worksite we want to hear from you. Please fill out this survey and provide estimate of how many cakes you will need. Each mooncake is individual-sized. We will contact you in advance to let you know if we can meet your request.

We will have the mooncakes delivered to your worksite on September 20 or 21, with some potentially arriving on September 24.

In Solidarity,

Gunter Seifert & Christy Slusarenko
Human Rights & Multicultural Committee co-chairs


Please note: The Human Rights & Multicultural Committee strives to bring awareness and celebrate different human rights causes and multicultural events including cultural and religious holidays. However, for logistical reasons, we may not always have the capacity to plan activities around all celebrations that are of significance for our members. We appreciate your understanding.
