Newcomer Collective Kitchen
September 8, 2020 - June 30, 2021
The Newcomer Cooking Circle brings people together through the simple act of cooking and sharing a meal together while addressing the stigma around sexual health and HIV in a cross-cultural context. This social space allows individuals to build connections with each other and gain strength and support. The kitchen buzzes with industry – people cutting onions, stirring sauces, washing dishes, welcoming people and having a good time. The aim is to have an open and judgement-free environment. This program allows individuals with a capacity-building opportunity through activities that not only encompass financial literacy but also health promotion that enhances leadership and interpersonal skills.
