I grew up in a low-income neighbourhood in Toronto. When times were hard, my family went without proper nutrition. I remember going to school on an empty stomach some days and not being able to concentrate.
The Taste of the Nation event raises money for nutritional education and services for Winnipeg families in need and around the world.
Christina Summers‘ childhood experiences drove her to volunteer with S.O.S. from 2009 to 2015. As co-chair in 2014, she led a cookbook project that featured 42 of Winnipeg’s top chefs. She did all the photography, pulling the publication together in six months, setting a new fundraising record.
