Successful Winter Session of the Mind Your Food Program at Harmony Community Food Centre

Harmony Community Food Centre (CFC) hosted another successful Mind Your Food youth program this past winter. Every Monday evening from January to March, 11 youth participants and 3 youth volunteers gathered at Harmony CFC to learn cooking skills, share food traditions, explore connections to land, and experience how food is related to wellbeing. For program participants, the highlights included preparing a traditional Tamil meal, making jalebi (click here for recipe), baking 300 chocolate chip cookies for Harmony CFC’s Community Meal, participating in a cooking competition with judges, and of course, enjoying lots of delicious foods!

The program wrapped up at the end of March with all participants and volunteers receiving a home-cooking kit to inspire future cooking and baking adventures! Harmony CFC is excited to welcome Mind Your Food alumni back to participate in food-centered alumni programming throughout the year.
