Dear kitchen friends,



Wed., 9-12:30 am : 3 cooks to prepare the community meal.

Friday, 12-3 pm : 3 cooks to help transform the fresh produce brought back from Moisson Montréal.

Our good friends Sue and Sheila, the Breakfast Club coordinators, are also looking for volunteers to complete their early morning team. Write to them here :

SouthWest Breakfast Club has been feeding Verdun Elementary School kids for many years (10 ?) already. The volunteers do an amazing job and have a lot of fun.


And now the program!

FRIDAY, 27th October

Community production workshop, 12-3 pm

The last Friday of the month, we bring plenty of fresh produce back from Harvest Montreal. These need to be transformed really quickly, or else they end up in the garbage. I am looking for a small team of volunteers to process the abundance ;)


Have a great week!
