There were many people involved in picking up the pieces and filling in the gap to provide lunches to kids no longer in school. Julie Van Rosendaal, a well-known and much-loved cookbook writer and cook was uniquely positioned to step in and help.
Two teachers - Megan Dobchuk-Land and Tanya Bonham from the Bowcroft school in Bowness created a network that fed hundreds of kids over the Spring and Summer of 2020. Watch and learn about how they created the ‘Bowness Food Network’.
Devour was one of many groups trying to ensure that children in need still received their daily lunch after the schools closed in mid-March. It was a win-win scenario. Over 12 weeks, the Devour team made 20,873 sandwiches for hungry kids.
We have made a sincere commitment to preparing as much of our food from scratch as humanly possible. Sure, it takes more time, but when we see people devouring the (flavourful) fruits of our labour, we know we’re doing things right.
As soon as I met the amazingly talented and enthusiastic Dana Goldstein, I knew I could muster the courage to get in front of her camera and tell everyone why Devour Catering believes so strongly in heartfelt hospitality.
Inspired by the Italian opera La Traviata, the five-course wine-paired menu for 330 guests was ambitious. Serving a dinner like this with no kitchen facilities is quite a roller coaster ride - but we love it.
Movies movies everywhere! Now this is how one should eat dinner and watch a movie! We hosted a fantastic 'movie themed' client appreciation party in March. There would be nothing to Devour without you! And the best way to say thank you is to have a party.
Yes - we bring wonderful food. But what we really hope to bring is our genuine heartfelt hospitality. It is this that makes the Devour difference we believe. As we say all the time - happy caterers make for happy parties.
Hiring a caterer can be a tricky business. Many of the calls we receive are from people often wrought with stress and worry since they have never worked with a caterer before. Fear not! We are here to help.
Devour believes that each day gives us something to celebrate. Gratitude, appreciation and connection are the essential ingredients for every celebration no matter how large or small. We call it heartfelt hospitality and we bring it to everything we do.
