Soup is sometimes more than soup. It's sustenance, comfort, a lifesaver, and a social glue. The community-building-fundraising movement of the same name in Chicago inspires our “Soup & Bread” Lunch.

On Feb 23rd at the South Hall. Lunch will be open to everyone at 12:30pm.
This event is a fundraiser for the Food Program’s Soup for Seniors Project
There is a suggested donation of $5-$10

Happy New Year, everyone! It’s the perfect time of year to start thinking about rebirth and renewal, and seeds!
Bill C-18 is currently before the Parliamentary Agriculture Committee. According to the National Farmers Union, “If passed, it will give multi-national agri-business much more money and control while increasing farmers’ costs and reducing farmers’ autonomy and Canadian sovereignty.”

By the time you read this the Stock Up! Market will have passed, the Saturday Market will be finished and our gardens will be winding down. Hopefully you were able to put away some of the season’s bounty to keep you through the winter. Canned tomatoes, dried tomato slices and frozen pesto are bursting out in our house.

It’s Sunday afternoon and I’ve got a pot of tomatoes bubbling away on the stove. Doug picked more than 20lbs this morning, his tomatoes are producing well this year – producing far more than we can possibly eat, but I don’t want to compost any of them! Instead, I’m cooking them down and will can them into a thick tomato sauce later this evening. Making a homemade tomato sauce that we’ll use on pizza, pasta and curries all year long.
On average Canadians throw away a quarter of the vegetables that we buy – it’s expensive and wasteful, even worse if you’ve grown the food yourself.
