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.
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.
