Partners for People

As part of June 2nd Hunger Awareness Day, Bracebridge’s Agilec (formerly Northern Lights) decided to engage their staff in a Food Challenge Cook off. Agilec works to provide tools and services to help achieve employment. Each staff member prepared a course for lunch based upon items found on the Manna ‘shopping list’. In addition, they had to include a secret ingredient- chickpeas. The competition was fierce, and the results delicious as a Manna Board member got to judge the results. Discussion over the food centred on how Manna and Agilec could work more closely together to assist many of the same clientele. In addition, a donation of food and money was made to Manna by this industrious staff. Indeed, this is one partnership that ‘really cooks’!Agelic lunch
