Communal Dining Helps Local At-Risk Youth

The Grandview Woodland Food Connection is pleased to partner with the Britannia Teen Centre in organizing the Off the Grill Youth Meal Program which is providing nutritious dinners for a group of at-risk youth at the Britannia Community Centre. Food is also served to the community thereby facilitating relationship building between these youth and the wider community where there is a sense of distrust and fear of the youth. A healthy communal dinner program is providing an important anchor with the aim to improve health outcomes among these youth and positive engagement with the community, recreation, educational and service providers through a community-based, intersectoral approach, filling several gaps in the lives of at-risk youth. https://gwfoodconnection.wordpress.com/author/gwfcnetwork/
