Celebration of Success

Carol and Glenn are quite popular at their Condo in Kingston, Ontario.  Many of their neighbours were very curious as to how the trip from Ottawa to Sydney, Nova Scotia went. This part makes up 1/4 of their total trip across Canada. Their neighbours wanted to know exactly how they accomplished this amazing feat. On Nov. 23, they hosted an evening of sharing, stories, pictures and awareness for their cause.  

There were a few special guests in attendance for this celebration.  Mara Shaw, Executive Director, from Loving Spoonful and family members Denise and Paul VandenEngel.  Denise and Paul also drove out to Sydney, Nova Scotia to pick up Glenn and Carol when they were finished!  It was a very welcomed ride home!  

As a way to spread even more awareness about Loving Spoonful they asked everyone to bring a fresh food donation and raised 108 lbs which was donated to 3 shelters in the area.  Executive Director, Mara from Loving Spoonful, also spoke about the different programs the organization offers to the community in Kingston.

To wrap things up Carol’s brother Paul VandenEngel, gave an incredible speech about their trip and what they are doing to raise awareness in the community. After, Paul presented them with a unique coin from the Canadian Mint, a Design by Canadian artist Margaret Best.

It was a wonderful evening and everyone left with a little more awareness of Loving Spoonful and the importance of creating access to healthy food for the Kingston Community.  Carol and Glenn are busy getting ready for part 2 starting in April 2018!
