Once a week we have the kitchen open to the people at the youth centre. We have a up to 22 people attend at one time, they prepare the food, have discussions on the day and socialize with each other. We have had this program since 2013 and it has helped out a lot of people in the community. We also have them bring their kids once a week to have fun at the youth centre.
No challenges with the program – it is very out going by having people spend time together, providing opportunities to share, talk and tell stories.
