For one night, chefs, brew masters and winemakers came together for a night of food and fun in St. Lawrence Market for Recipe for Change. It’s all to raise money for a good cause.
Debbie Field has been the Executive Director of FoodShare since 1992. She first become involved in FoodShare as a parent concerned about how poor the food in her children’s elementary school was. To her, the school programs have had the most impact.
These programs include healthy school food programs and hands-on education to teach students food skills. In 2015, Debbie would like to expand the Good Food Cafe into as many high schools as possible.The Good Food Cafe is a healthy cafeteria, that serves up delicious food that is also good for you. Students enjoy a diverse menu including items such as jerk chicken, shepard’s pie, squash & bean burritos, and more!
For the public, FoodShare offers workshops year round. New this year is the FoodShare Academy series of workshops that will provide urban agriculture skills. (Check it out here!)
