Cornwall Ontario — To celebrate Food Banks Canada’s Hunger Awareness Week taking place May 6th to the 10th, the Agape Centre is planning a variety of activities catering to all ages.
The week will kick off with the “So you think you know hunger exhibition & competition”, an event featuring the work of senior high school students demonstrating their knowledge on the topic. Students will be evaluated by a panel of judges and evaluated on the effectiveness of their message, creativity, inspiration, fresh approach, quality and detail.
May 7th will feature a breakfast with Dr. Sylvain Charlebois, May 8th a double feature of documentaries at the Cornwall Public Library, May 9th a dinner and tour for teens of Cornwall and May 10th a spaghetti dinner fundraiser & 80’s Dance Party. Individuals can get involved by attending these free and paid events. You can get a “Hunger Week Pass” for $50. Visit http://agapecentre.ca/ for specific venues and times.
Businesses and organizations can also get involved by becoming community “Hunger Heroes”.
Throughout the week, the soup kitchen will become a cooking arena for those who wish to help in weeding out hunger by hosting a lunch from beginning to end. Under the guidance of Lori Greer, Operations Manager and Tracy Barker, Head Cook, you and your team will select, prepare and serve a hot meal to the people who visit the premises daily. Teams should be made out of 7 to 10 people.
