Supper Club Nourishes Mind, Body and Soul
Of the many programs offered at GCGT, one of the most successful is our Not-Just-Supper Club program. The program is run by Chef and nutrition professor, Amy Symington M.Sc., along with her team of diverse and eager volunteers, many of whom are enrolled in the Culinary Management Nutrition (CMN) Program Chef Amy teaches at George Brown College (GBC). Together they deliver nutrient-dense, health-promoting meals that allow members to avoid the stress of organizing and preparing dinner for themselves and their families, while simultaneously giving them the opportunity to come together in a supportive, comforting and empowering community setting. The Not-Just-Supper Club format provides a focus point for a range of positive social outcomes: nutrient dense, wellness-promoting meals, community emotional support, and targeted health and wellness education.
Any member attending a support group at Gilda's Club Greater Toronto on Tuesday or Thursday evenings is welcome to drop by for the Not-Just-Supper club beforehand, prepared by Amy and her kitchen staff. Members can also sign up for one of Amy’s nutrition workshops or culinary demonstrations.
