We had a great time at the dinner and social on Wednesday evening and I love that we had a lot of people come out to the event. It was even better to hear that many people that we met through our weekly outreach attended! Although we had a few technical difficulties at the beginning, we managed to get started without a hitch.
Josephine presented our new powerpoint on the OASIS community food hub project we’re trying to get off the ground and had a discussion on the importance of involving indigenous people in the project. People also had a chance to have discussions and brainstorm what clean and healthy food means to them.
During the dinner prepared by our amazing cook, Petra, the team got to chat with people who came to the social dinner about their thoughts on the project and just getting to know people in the neighbourhood. I saw many enthusiastic conversation and was delighted to see that a broad range of people were engaged with our project.
I’m glad that we had an opportunity to host a dinner social to connect with people over healthy and delicious food. I’m even more excited that there were fruitful conversations about the community food hub and genuinely interested people who are keen to get involved!
