   Hot Lunch Tuesdays - Community Kitchen

The Rexdale Women’s Centre, in partnership with Toronto Public Health and the North York Harvest Food Bank, is offering FREE hot meals. Come out and enjoy a delicious FREE meal. Socialize with other Rexdale community members and learn more about your community services.

The program just started in April 2011 and the response from community has been amazing. The Community Kitchen Program is run by volunteers who have received food handling training, as well as nutrition training, in order to prepare delicious, healthy and nutritious meals.

The Community Kitchen Program encourages community members to come out and socialize with other members. Together community members create a platform for social networking and a place to congregate for people from diverse cultural backgrounds. This is a great opportunity for newcomers to get to know their community thus reducing the sense of isolation often experienced by new immigrants who have not had yet had the chance to create lasting connections in Canada. The program also offers a unique opportunity to taste food from diverse cultures which works magic in reducing barriers and promoting an atmosphere of respect for multiculturalism.

On Wednesday May 25, 2011, Global TV aired an interview with RWC about the Community Kitchen and the other services provided by the centre. Click here to view the interview on Global TV
