Memories of our food programs 2021

The year went by so quickly and I didn’t get a chance to blog due to the battle of supporting my mom through her last days. But the memory is still there, in my mind and heart. Well..Mom always said, “eat your vegetables” and she knew what she was talking about because her skin always glowed! Well mom, this is for you and all of you out there in the community! So much to look forward to!

Food rescue, saved from neighbours back yards

In this video you will find some of our food security programs in action such as prepping food skills or meals for families and seniors. Packaging food to support families with emergency food bags. Holiday-hampers to help out during Christmas. Canning workshops were messy but fun! Children in the kitchen with their parents learning food skills too! Food rescue providing a supplement budget to our neighbours and programs. We spent a lot of time out in the garden giving away seeds and sowing the land in hopes of sustenance. We were successful with zucchini, kale and tomatoes! Promoted preservation workshops saving and dehydrating apples and showed how to freeze Kale. Smoothies made of kale, blueberries, strawberries and a dash of yoghurt and almond milk was such a huge success! We exchanged our harvest and celebrated in the park at our Harvest Fest! Indigenous garden and land workshops to honour our land and nature for healing and curing. Especially our ceremonious moment of transplanting our precious sweetgrass. There Is indeed so much to look forward to this year and yes mom, I promise to eat my vegetables!
