Lakehead University’s Office of Community Engagement and Lifelong Learning (CELL) is pleased to present Making (and Breaking) Bread in support of Shelter House Thunder Bay and The Sharing Place Food Centre in Orillia.  

On Tuesday, Dec. 15 at 7 p.m., join culinary teacher and cookbook author Claire Tansey, author of Dinner, Uncomplicated, as she shares the secrets of her "No-Knead Bread," demonstrating how you, too, can cook the perfect loaf at home this holiday season.  

As the dough rises, Dr. Linda Rodenburg, Director of Community Engagement and Lifelong Learning, will chat with Chris Peacock, Executive Director of The Sharing Place, and Michelle Jordan, Executive Director of Shelter House Thunder Bay, about the innovative programs that make these food centres central to our communities.  

“The pandemic may have made baking bread a popular pastime, but it has also been a challenging and difficult year for many, increasing reliance on our local food centres,” explained Rodenburg. “Hosting this event is just one way that the University can give back to our communities this holiday season.”

Tickets are $20 each and include on-demand access to enjoy the documentary film, Bread: An Everyday Miracle (2020).
