Here are some pictures from our last cooking class with Concordia’s International Student Organization (ISO).
As part of the #MyPeterMcGill project, we are cooking with new students from the neighbourhood, helping them acquaint themselves with Canadian ingredients and foods, answering questions about local grocery stores and helping them get to know their new home!
My Peter-McGill is about so much more than cooking ; its actually a 5-year collective organized by local residents to support the development of public space in our neighbourhood. Green spaces, public schools, housing and a community centre – these are all initiatives we are working on together!
We are excited to welcome you and unveil all the exciting things ahead for 2018, such as our library programming, our diverse community activities and much more!
