Causeway will once again be a beneficiary of the fabulous Bon Appetit Ottawa fundraiser! This year, we will direct the Bon Appetit funds to support the Community Kitchen run by Krackers Katering, one of Causeway Work Centre’s social entreprises. Each Friday afternoon for four weeks, Mike Collins, a Causeway client and employee of Krackers Katering, teaches 5 to 6 participants how to cook healthy, nutritious meals on a limited budget. The program helps clients identify healthier food choices and implement creative ways to stretch their budget and make healthier meals for themselves and their families. Participants choose four meals collectively with the instructor, and help in the planning, shopping and cooking of the meals. Each Community Kitchen participant gets to take five portions of the meal home with them each week. A recipe book and nutritional guide is given to all clients who participate in the program. The Community Kitchen is open to clients of Causeway’s employment programs and social businesses as part of our holistic approach to helping people reach their employment goals.

On Tuesday, May 6th come out to Ottawa’s premiere gourmet event and support local charities at the same time. The event will be held at the EY Centre located at 4899 Uplands Drive from 5:30pm to 9pm. This food and wine show will feature over 90 restaurants, caterers, wineries and breweries. Your $85 ticket (with a $50 tax receipt) includes all the food and beverages for the evening.

Thank you again to the board and volunteers of Bon Appetit for all their hard work!
