In Guelph-Wellington it’s estimated (and acknowledged by our local school boards) that 1,500 to 1,800 children in our local schools experience food insecurity in their homes – marginal, moderate or severe.  Food insecurity refers to inadequate or insecure access to food due to financial constraints.

Food4Kids Waterloo-Wellington provides packages of healthy food for kids aged 14 years and under with limited or no access to food each weekend.  Packages of healthy food are prepared by volunteers and delivered to schools each Friday to ensure children have nourishment over the weekend.

The four Guelph Rotary clubs, together with The SEED, have formed a steering committee to bring Food4Kids to Guelph-Wellington-Dufferin.  All four clubs have provided startup funding and The SEED is providing free space, purchasing power and logistics management.

Note: The SEED is a community food project of the Guelph CHC, a collaborative initiative of community partners in Guelph & Wellington with the shared vision of strengthening the local emergency food system, using the power of food to build healthy communities and addressing the underlying issues of food insecurity and poverty.

Tom Armitage (The SEED) is Distribution Co-ordinator, Garden Fresh Box Co-ordinator
Kelly Sue Oberle (Food4Kids Waterloo-Wellington) is Founder/Executive Director

Leah DeSpiegelaere (pronouced “Duh-Spee-Gler”) came to Guelph back in 2000 to complete her Bachelor of Commerce in Marketing. After graduation she spent 7 years in Arts Administration helping theatres and orchestras sell subscription series tickets then moved on to corporate retail working for Cadillac Fairview shopping centres for another 6. Through the career transitions with different companies, Leah always found great joy in the connections that she made with and for the individuals that she encountered. And that is what she loves the most about the neighbourhood magazines she is currently producing … having the ability to connect residents in neighbourhoods with each other and with the local businesses that surround them.

In addition to the Guelph publications, Best Version Media magazines serve over 500 neighbourhoods in North America, 100 of which are in Canada. So, though Leah’s day-to-day work is extremely local, she does have the support of a larger organization behind her.

When you get your hands on the publication I’m sure you will think “Yes Leah, it is a magazine. I have seen a magazine it feels like a magazine and I’m sure it works just like a magazine.”  But today she will be sharing with us the many reasons why it is so different than what you have seen before.

Christine Oldfield is Executive Director of PIN (formerly Volunteer Centre of Guelph-Wellington) and will speak on the new special initiative they are launching called "Youth Days of Action".  It involves taking bus loads of students (25-50) to a local nonprofit or charity, to learn about what they do and to participate in a group volunteer activity.  Examples of group activities might be tree planting, sorting food at a food bank, yard work at Guelph/Wellington Women in Crisis etc.  The target audience of this initiative are students who are at risk of not graduating because of failure to meet the community service hours requirement.  The goal of the program is 3-fold:

  1. introduce students to places to volunteer in their community
  2. complete a portion of their required community service hours, and
  3. encourage a life long commitment to volunteering

Inspired Outcomes is Canada's NLP Centre for Healing Trauma & Breaking Through.
NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming Coaching is a different way of seeking positive change. It's a way of using your unconscious mind to change the way you feel, how you focus and the results you get!

If you've tried life coaching or counseling or therapy before, or you have a bookshelf full of personal growth books that haven't yet healed your pain or motivated you to succcess, NLP will help.  If you want to create better relationships and become more fulfilled as a person, NLP will help. If you want to experience yourself at your best, NLP will help. 

We provide one on one coaching and we also train professionals and coaches.  If you are interested in learning more about what NLP is and how it can help transform your life, come to one of our Destiny Weekends or call us to learn about our trainings.
