An upcoming initiative by Kitchener Waterloo Community Foundation (KWCF) and Cambridge & North Dumfries Community Foundation (CNDCF) has piqued my interest with its offer of food, conversation, and community! It's called On the Table and it encourages folks to "bring together your friends, colleagues or strangers over some food to talk about what matters most to you. This is an event that’s happening across Waterloo Region, where you’re in charge. Whether it’s a meal, snack or coffee break, On the Table encourages individuals or organizations to take the time and connect with one-another face-to-face."
The event is to happen between Sept. 27-29th and hosts (that could be you!) select the venue, arrange for the food and drink, as well as the topic(s) to discuss. Maybe it will be some of the larger issues our region is facing such as affordable housing or active transportation. Or perhaps it will be more specific to your neighbourhood such as how to welcome new neighbours to the area. The topics are completely up to you. Topics will then be collected by On the Table folks and shared to give us a better understanding of the issues important in Waterloo Region currently. If you can't host your own event, you may want to instead join one of the many public events happening. Find out all the details, including how to become a host (with resources!), on KWCF's website. #365ofgoodWR
