It’s interesting that two of my passions, social investing and great eating often go together. There are many celebrity dinners held every year with proceeds going to good causes. Generally the ticket is $100-$300.
But yesterday I came across a $6 gem as I was introduced to the Trinity Square Cafe in the Church of the Holy Trinity behind the Eaton’s Centre here in Toronto. The kitchen produces some of the best soups in town and yesterday’s feature was a yummy home made mac & cheese which I paired with a fantastic Moroccan tomato soup.
The Church has teamed up with a George Brown College (known for culinary studies) program called Redirection through Education which helps folks with mental illness develop or rebuild skills in a working environment. The result is a humble kitchen, putting good folks to work to produce a great lunch.
Here’s a great post on the program and the details on the cafe.
So next time you’re in the area of Bay and Dundas (Toronto) around lunch time, join the great mix of folks from suits to street clothes that enjoy a hearty, delicious meal at the Trinity Square Cafe!
