A great place to connect – over food in the kitchen
Lethbridge College’s Residence and Student Life teams will kick off a series of three Connect in the Kitchen events in the 30th Avenue Residence Hall. Subsequent events are planned March 17 and March 24. This is a chance for invited students to meet new people and connect over a delicious meal. A cooking lesson will be provided, and each week will feature a different dish. Today’s dish is Indian cuisine. Up to 10 students will be part of the meal prep and the cooking before, of course, enjoying the meal together. This event is made possible by the Alberta Advanced Education Post-secondary Student Mental Health Grant because we know connecting with others is important to mental health, and connecting over food adds a delicious dimension.
