Student Dinner Night

Student Dinner Night is an opportunity for students in middle-school, high-school and post-secondary to come together and enjoy a delicious meal in community. Student Dinner Night offers vegetarian and meat options every week with the hopes of bringing together youth within the neighbourhood. The meal is made from 90% reclaimed foods and is by-donation. Bring re-usable containers for take-homes.

Student Dinner Night will feature a rotating schedule of activities to accompany dinner including singer-songwriter evenings, art shows, spoken word poetry nights, zine making, crafts and more.

When: Wednesday evenings: Meal served: 5:30-6:30pm, seconds & take-homes offered 6:30-7:30pm (starting September 12, 2018)
Cost: Drop-in/$5 suggested donation

Student Dinner is currently looking for dedicated youth volunteers to help set-up, greet, serve and tear-down the dinner every Wednesday. This is a great opportunity to learn valuable skills and gain volunteer hours!

We’re also hoping to collaborate with youth for the rotating schedule of activities. Would you like to help put on an art show? Are you a youth musician? Want to share your skills or talent with other people?

If you’re interested in volunteering or being a part of Student Dinner, please contact kathryn@fernwoodnrg.ca or call 250-381-1552 ext.118.

 

Youth Food Skills Program (begins October 2018)

Youth will have the opportunity to learn food skills in the Fernwood Community Centre Kitchen on Tuesdays after school (3:15-4:30pm) with the Chef of the Fernwood Community Centre. If you or your child is interested in this program at the Fernwood Community Centre, please contact Kathryn (kathryn@fernwoodnrg.ca).

The youth group will focus on skills such as: kitchen etiquette, knife skills, one-pan pasta, soup, sauces, and of course, dessert.
