2019 Canada Life Literacy Innovation Award Top Winner Webinar

16 October 2019 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Please join us for a presentation followed by a Q & A with the winner of this year’s Canada Life Literacy Innovation Award to learn about their winning literacy program. Family Services of Greater Vancouver (FSGV) will share their winning program, Caring Neighbours, a community kitchen program that uniquely combines health, food and financial literacies and creates important social connections among vulnerable and socially isolated families, children and seniors. Join us for this capacity-building webinar and learn how FSGV’s program can serve as a model for organizations to adapt and bring to their communities.

Participants come for the food and leave with a breadth of practical skills, including basic cooking skills, meal planning, household budgeting, social skills and an understanding of how to access the community services and resources available to them.

This innovative program takes a basic human need, food, and creates a fun and accessible entry point into literacy and skills development to engage vulnerable and isolated families and individuals. Caring Neighbours has reached more than 1,500 individuals and has demonstrated marked success in building participants’ skills and knowledge, increasing healthy social connections, confidence and trust.
