Amazing news: now we’re *really* cooking.

My colleague Tamsyn Brennan, acting executive director of Veith House, forwarded me an email she received Friday from Starr Dobson. It reads, in part:

“The Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia is very pleased to let you know your ‘Veith House Community Kitchen Large Appliance Installation’ grant request has been considered and approved for funding through our new Compass Group Canada Grant program.”

Translation: we got the grant for a commercial dishwasher!  Our community kitchen will for sure be up and running and cooking very soon.

This is the latest step Screen Shot 2015-03-30 at 10.09.38 AMforward in an effort that began in earnest last fall with contributions from Stan Levy, Lesley and friends, and the Halifax Community Health Board.  It takes a community to build a community kitchen and we are doing it.
