Summary of the Initiative

We provide one free meal daily (lunch on weekdays, dinner on weekends) to whoever comes in the door. On top of this, we provide cooking classes for youth and adults alike, and we also host occasional events such as film and speaker nights to raise awareness about food insecurity issues.

Challenges

We find it difficult to find the volunteers needed to put our plans into action.

Traditional Knowledge

We maintain an inclusive approach in that no one who comes to eat is turned away. As much as possible we try to incorporate the requests and wishes of our guests, and they are welcome to join us at our educational events.
