Shepherds of Good Hope Soup Kitchen
Students were asked to plan a community service project related to food security in Ottawa. Students brainstormed various options and decided to utilize some of the kitchen skills they have learned in our Cooking Program by preparing food for a soup kitchen.
At Shepherds of Good Hope, students cut fresh vegetables that would then be frozen in bags and used to prepare soups throughout the winter. While we were at the facility, we were given a tour of the kitchen and food bank facilities. We learned a lot about how the organization works, and how many people are in need of food in Ottawa. The soup kitchen serves 1700 people every day! For more information on the Shepherds of Good Hope, you can visit their website: http://shepherdsofgoodhope.com/
