Collective kitchen

Collective Kitchen

The LCRC has always offered collective kitchens as a way to bring residents together, break isolation and share a communal meal. We coordinated 5 different kitchens in different locations in Lowertown to reach residents in welcoming and easily accessible locations.

It’s a very nice place. They help a lot. Every time I need help, it’s always here when I need a hand to reach to. Thank you!

The Resource Centre has been very helpful and supportive to newcomers.

I love the Monday breakfasts and the community kitchens, especially the new cultural food experiences.

We must open doors and we must see to it they remain open, so that others can pass through.
