In March of 2011, a project called LES SAVEURS DU MONDE was launched in NDG. It is a project that aims to support recent arrivals in NDG – food and conversation draw us together, and workshops provide support for integration into our city and into Canadian society more generally.
Held on an occasional basis (two events planed for Fall 2013), and held in our building, the program includes a meal, and a workshop on some key issue – children’s programming is provided while parents attend the workshop. At a recent instalment of LES SAVEURS, the workshop was on housing.
This project has been launched by Bienvenue a NDG, the NDG Food Depot, Les Ateliers Boite a Lunch, and of course by Kensington. We are pleased to be a key part of his community-building initiative.
