Staff Update:

Effective April 25, 2019, Tracey Treidler is now the Community Café Program Manager. She will be responsible for the smooth operation of day-to-day business of the New Community Café Program. Serving our Centre for over 8 years, she has been the backbone of the kitchen, well-liked by our members, volunteers and staff. With her knowledge, personality and experience, I’m confident that the New Community Café Program will grow to be our Centre’s happy hub that builds connection, provides support, and promotes healthy nutrition for seniors. When you see Tracey in the Centre, please extend your congratulations to her on a well-deserved promotion.

 

Community Cafe Update:

According to Statistics Canada (2017), 28.9% of Canadians who are 50 and over have been diagnosed with diabetes. Our Community Cafe Program is well aware of this challenge and will start serving delicious diabetic sensitive sweets such as muffins, cookies and loaves. One of our kitchen volunteers, Lorraine Doiron, will take the lead to prepare these treats for you from scratch, she is known for making the substitution for sugar as natural as possible. When you are enjoying these sugar-smart goodies, make sure to let her know how much you appreciate this considerate care.

We always welcome members to share their diabetic sensitive recipes with our Community Cafe program. We look forward to making our Community Cafe a healthy life style learning Cafe.
