Sharing Cultures Nights
Monthly nights are organized by a committee of local residents at various locations throughout South Burnaby. Each dinner features a cultural theme and is a great place to relax, and meet your neighbours. Cost is $3 for adults and $2 for children. Reservations required.

Community Kitchen  

It’s a weekly program offered at Maywood Community School that involves cooking, eating, and lots of great conversation and laughter.  Families or individuals who have limited income join together to prepare healthy meals to take home, and to have lunch together.  We always use everyone’s favourite family recipes and include many kid-friendly foods.  Free childminding is available.  Our next Community Kitchen group will begin soon.

If you are interested in joining us, please call Lynn at 604-431-0400.
