Green Wood was featured in a presentation called "Eating Together: The Role of Food in Community" at Trent University's Why Act? series in Peterborough, where Carlee Giffen, David Sheffield and Cyndi Gilmer were invited to speak. The week-long series provides a space for academics, social activists and students to address the way in which Social Justice can happen in this community and across the globe.
In preparation for speaking at Why Act?, Carlee organized a shared meal, last week, with a few friends at Green Wood's downtown space. Butternut Squash Curry and good conversation were on the menu.
"Over the past 3 months, during my clinical placement,
I have felt this sense of community that I have never experienced before
and never thought was even possible, in this day and age.
I truly believe that at the centre of all of this is food and its ability to bring people together and make meaningful social connections."
