I saw my community was offering cultural small neighbourhood grants, with a focus on celebrating Ukrainian culture. I took this opportunity to invite a community member with a Ukrainian background to share various cultural recipes with our neighbourhood group. With grocery prices rising sharply quite quickly, we were worried we would not be able to cover all costs for all participants as initially planned. But fortunately we were able to provide participants with the basic ingredients needed. Participants were able to provide any extras (such as meat options) themselves. Through this project we were able to learn more about Ukrainian culture and authentic recipes, and bond with one another over our love of delicious comfort food.
Attached is a photo submitted by one of our participants of some yummy perogies they made.
