Not all of us can cook
Are you among the many Torontonians who claim they can’t cook? As best you try, you still find new ways to surprise yourself at how ghastly your meals come out. When you tell the family you’re making dinner tonight, they mutter to themselves
“Please lord help us.”
Well, that’s not John, a 55-year-old male who despite living in a homeless shelter for the past seven years, says he can cook! And he’s about to get his chance again now that he’s qualified for housing support. In August, he’s moving into a small apartment and embarking on a new chapter in his life. He’s excited about cooking his meals again, but he’s also bit nervous – it’s been a while, and he doesn’t want to burn his new place down!
How you can help
John needs a bit of a head start on cooking again (and a lovely reminder that his neighbours are cheering him on during this new stage in life). We’re pooling funds and working with Sorry I’ve Got Plants to supply John with a one-week meal kit, including tasty vegan produce and ingredients delivered to his apartment. Even if you can’t cook a meal, you can still whip up something special!
