In the fall of 2012 ten Selkirk College embarked on a pilot program on healthy eating and living. With funding provided by a provincial organization called Healthy Minds/ Healthy Campuses we cooked, ate together and explored what it means to stay well while being a college student.
Located in Nelson, British Columbia, the Tenth Street Food Club was created to connect students with healthy eating habits and great food! College is a transitional time and diet is often overshadowed by school work, projects and exams, extra curricular activities and more! Our goal here is to exchange recipes and tips for healthy living with Selkirk College students, right in their own home at the Tenth Street Residence. A year later a Dinner Club started on Castlegar campus as well where Joleen Kinakin is helping students learn about cooking and budgeting.
And then, in Januray 2014 we started Dinner Basket Conversations where groups can cook and eat a meal together and have a facilitated discussion that explores experiences and values around substance use.
