Recipe for Community is dedicated to community building - supporting the development of safe, vibrant, prosperous neighbourhoods. It features resident-inspired projects to strengthen the community's sense of opportunity, belonging and pride and to build skills and capacity-building initiatives. The focus is on food and nutrition, neighbourhood greening and beautification, community gatherings and youth engagement.

St. James Town residents will demonstrate skills newly acquired through training in cooking healthy foods, participating in a basketball clinic and repairing bicycles.
