Looking for something to do with the kids on March Break? Chef Yves has two family cooking classes schedule. March 4th at noon and March 9th at noon. If you're interested in coming in then please email Chef so he knows who to expect and can be sure there are enough ingredients for everyone.
What do most kids do on a snow day? Not Rachel and Cara who went around their neighborhood to collect food for the Foodbank and brought in 3 big bags full!! Thank you so much!
Twice a month Chef Yves puts on a collective kitchen. This is a hands on cooking experience and at the end you get to go home with 6-8 portions of what was made!
This month is Asian style dumplings - perfect for potstickers or wonton soup. Come and learn how to make pork, chicken and vegetarian dumplings and then take some home with you!
Tuesday January 15th - 6:00pm
Thursday January 17th - 12:30pm
Collective kitchens are free for our clients and $15 donation for the community.
Spaces are limited so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to book your space.

Global News came and did a story on the cooking classes in our Learning Kitchen.
Every month we have three cooking classes/demos, two collective kitchens and one family class. The monthly schedule can be found here.
All classes and the collective kitchen are free to our clients. Classes are by donation to the public and the collective kitchen is $15 for the public.
The classes are quick 1/2 hour instruction demos done over lunch hour (12:30-1pm). The collective kitchens are longer (90 minutes) and hands on with each participant taking home 8-10 portions of what was made together.
When we get to that time of year when people say what they are thankful for - we are thankful for the continued support from the community. From individual donations to large corporate donations, the people and businesses of Fredericton are what allow us to provide assistance to over 1200 families every month.
We're happy to have the Spark program from George Street School come in Friday mornings to explore cooking in the kitchen with Chef Yves. Today the kids made homemade pizza and pasta salad.
If you're interested in setting up something similar with your school contact Chef at email@example.com.
Nice to have people come in from Deloitte as part of their month of giving!! They got a ton (literally) accomplished in the food warehouse and in sorting the incoming donations coming in to the boutique!
A little late as our web person has been using up some vacation time before the busyness of Christmas takes us full throttle. There are some people we really need to thank though - Sunrise Rotary, The Radical Edge, Burger King, Fredericton Food Rescue and more.
A huge thank you to everyone involved in the Beer on the Bridge event!! Sunrise Rotary stopped by at our recent Open House event to present us with this donation!
It's not exactly lemons and lemonade but it is a fair amount of tart, local grapes from a gleaning project that Chef Yves turned into 126 jars of grape jelly that we can then put up as one of our client choice items.
Thank you to Burger King (Smythe Street and Cliffe Street) and all their customers for the generous donation!
Thank you to the Radical Edge, Osprey, Graystone Brewing and Jennie! This year we provided school supplies for over 400 children and your donation of 100 book bags was a huge help!!
