Join Ginny and other staff in playing with children while their caregivers attend programming within the centre
We welcome home cooked meals that can be frozen and given to families in time of need. We recommend meals to be packaged in tinfoil containers with any possible allergens listed. Non-perishable food items are also kept for families.
Once a month we serve a meal for the community, Spry Café, giving people the chance to have a free, delicious meal with their family and neighbours. Julia Child once said “It’s fun to get together and have something good to eat at least once a day. That’s what human life is all about — enjoying things.” Hosting a dinner is great volunteer experience for team building, community outreach, and to meet new people while promoting your business or organization.
A typical Spry Café costs approximately $250 to feed 40 community members. You can offer support by donating both the money and time (approximately 3-4 hours) to host the event with the support of Chebucto Family Centre staff, or by donating the money to Chebucto Family Centre and we will host on your behalf. In return for your donation we would be happy to advertise your group via our Facebook page, our monthly calendar and our newsletter.
If you are interested in hosting a Spry café or would like more information please call 902-479-3031 ext 302.
