A recap of the Peterborough Immigration Partnership’s work in the month of September 2018
Newcomer Kitchen Peterborough finds success at VegFest 2018
The Newcomer Kitchen Peterborough ran a successful food vendor booth on September 16th at the second annual VegFest. This event concluded the group’s nearly year-long training with the New Canadians Centre and the Nourish Project, that included: team building, recipe development, kitchen numeracy, nutrition, culinary management, and event planning skills. The group will now begin to build and promote their catering business independently, with support from us as needed. Follow them on Facebook as they plan a fundraising dinner in October to help support their purchase of much needed equipment. The group will also be featured soon at upcoming local events.
