Inn from the Cold – Cooking with Rotary


I spent an amusing and eye-opening evening at one of Kelowna’s Winter Shelters for the homeless. I worked alongside Greg and other wonderful Rotarians to cook a huge pasta dinner. We had laughs and interacted with the residents for the evening. Many of the residents accessing Inn from the Cold were clients of my life skills and employment program and it was nice to see some familiar faces and to catch up with some of my clients who had ended their time at our program to get an update on how things are progressing. We had many nice desserts and the residents were very grateful for our service. Rotary Ogopogo Club generously donates one evening a week to the Inn to assist with suppers for the needy, they are tasty dinners that are very much appreciated!
