The Petits Chefs baked up a big batch of Chef Myles Chaulk’s cornbread – his secret recipe from The County General – to send to Eva’s Place this week. Chef is a graduate of the programme at Eva’s so his involvement with the boys this terms has been amazing. It’s so much more meaningful for them to have that contact with someone who has benefited from the wonderful work Eva’s does. He wasn’t able to attend our session this week but sent the boys instructions via video message and, of course, the secret recipe!
The boys rolled up their sleeves and did a great job with a huge batch !
We melted “A LOT” of butter…
Around a half an hour later…
How you can help Eva’s Place this holiday season: eat out at a Mealshare restaurant!
How does Mealshare work?
The concept behind Mealshare is simple – there are three simple steps to help youth in need:
1. Choose a restaurant (currently Canadian Mealshare partner restaurants are located in Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal)
2. Look for the Mealshare logo next to a menu item and order it! You’ll receive and enjoy your meal, but you’re also providing one meal to a youth in need. There’s no extra cost or action for you – just buy one, give one!
3. When a partner restaurant sells a Mealshare menu item, they contribute financially to Mealshare, who sends most of those funds to a partner charity to purchase and provide one meal to a youth in need. Mealshare has at least one local charity partner in each city where they operates (in Toronto it’s Eva’s Initiatives for Homeless Youth), and provides half of the meals locally. The other half are provided through their international charity partner, Save the Children.
Please do consider supporting Mealshare for your next meal out.
