Youth creates amazing meal for Rights of Passage Community Dinner

We had an amazing Community Dinner recently at ROP in honor of National Aboriginal Month.

One of our youth who is Aboriginal took the lead in planning, prepping and cooking the meal. The youth also said a few words in their Native language to bless the food and thank the ancestors for the land that they cooked and were eating on. She also explained the history of the 3 Sisters Dish which has beans, squash and corn in it. The youth also whipped up homemade strawberry ice cream for desert. One of our amazing Covenant House cooks contributed homemade bannock to the meal as well.

Everyone said the meal and whole evening was incredible. Congratulations and thank you to the young person for the delicious meal and for sharing their culture with us.
