Our Cooking Programs

Our cooking classes take place a the PC Cooking School in Loblaws locations. Each pariticpant or "lil spoon" is paired with a university student or "big spoon" and together they learn to create a variety of recipes and learn about healthy eating. We strive to help teach cooking while fostering relationships and bridging communities together.

Develop Life-skills 

Our life-skills workshops consist of weekly programming that teaches our participants basic life-skills such as grocery shopping, commuting on public transportation, sports instruction, crafts and science experiements. Each child is paired with a university student for the classes.
