Our annual Boxing Day turkey dinner was bigger and better than ever with a record 290 meals being served. That number includes 149 meals eaten at the Mission over two sittings; a record 61 meals delivered to people with reduced mobility; another 40 taken out by guests to relatives and friends; and finally 40 volunteers who got to enjoy the meal when their work was finally done.
At the Mission, our kitchen never stays quiet for long. Breakfast club starts up on Monday as soon as the kids are back in class. Meanwhile, our kitchen coordinator organized a simple meal for all who dropped in on Wednesday the 3rd of January. Turkey leftovers - what else? - were turned into pies and about 15 people enjoyed a low-key Welcome Wednesday. A full-scale WW including Mini-market will return in two weeks, on January 17th.

Cooking workshops for teens and tweens are also starting back up: Easy Peasy Recipes, for ages 10-12, is on Tuesdays from 5 to 6PM; TeenCuisine, for age 13 and up, is on Wednesdays from 5 to 7PM.
