Our Collective Kitchen program now meets twice a month with 2 different formats. On the 2nd Monday of each month we gather together and enjoy social time while we cook delicious meals to take home and reheat. The registration cost of $5.00 can be subsidized if needed and provides each participant with 4 servings of a casserole, a soup, stew or chili, and a baked good. On the 4th Monday of each month we gather in the kitchen and prepare meals to be distributed by the Huron County Foodbank Distribution Centre! A BIG THANK YOU to our partners in this project: Community Living South Huron and the Huron County Foodbank Distribution Centre! All of our volunteers will still be able to take home two dishes, this month we are making Mexican Rice and Bean Casserole and Apple Crisp! Everyone is welcome.
