Calvary Baptist Church Burlington – $5,480 (Larger Grant)
North BurLINKton: Taste & See Canada
This grant will support a collaborative effort between Calvary Baptist Church and North BurLINKton around a series of four events reaching a marginalized population in Burlington who are otherwise unlikely to be a part of the Canada 150 celebrations. The events will create an opportunity to taste food from a variety of cultures in a community meal setting, see cultural dance groups, hear music from diverse people groups, and participate in the creation of a community art piece that celebrates Canada 150. Canada 150 is a unique opportunity to create dialogue and new understanding about the changing face of our neighbours in Burlington and Canada. By using a community meal setting, they are able to address food security in marginalized people in Burlington. This project will engage local youth as leaders on the steering committee to plan and implement the events.
