On a Friday evening in October, friends and neighbours gathered in the basement community hall and kitchen to cook as a community, socialize and learn how to create a new ethnic dish or two. Teams of participants helped chop, stir, roll, bake and simmer a variety of dishes of local and distant homeland inspiration. We gathered to dine as a community, marvel at the yummy feast, and meet new neighbours while seated at large round tables. Ursula Ekk has been organizing this community meal in Sunset, funded by a neighbourhood small grant for several years. The community is always thankful for her commitment to this special meal and opportunity to gather and connect.
