Oakville Mayor Rob Burton and Oakville MPP Kevin Flynn were at the Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre Friday, April 13 to officially open the facility’s new community kitchen.

The commercial-grade kitchen, which was made possible through a $92,500 Ontario 150 Community Capital grant received in 2017, is expected to make a real difference in the community.

“Thanks to this special funding, QE (Queen Elizabeth) Park now has a beautiful, state-of-the-art kitchen that will enable community organizations to prepare and serve their own food at their events,” said Flynn.

“This facility will help connect more people, to break, and maybe even bake bread together. This kitchen will prove to have a lasting impact on our community and will continue to bring Oakville closer together.”

“Council is always looking for new opportunities for residents to share their culture and connect with each other. This new inclusive kitchen will allow them to do so in a meaningful way.”

Town staff said the kitchen would also provide a venue for cooking and nutrition programs for all ages including upcoming spring programs and summer camps.

It will also be available for community programs and events.

“Council is always looking for new opportunities for residents to share their culture and connect with each other,” said Oakville Mayor Rob Burton.

“This new inclusive kitchen will allow them to do so in a meaningful way.”

Administered by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, an agency of the Government of Ontario, the Ontario 150 Capital Program grants help non-profit organizations, municipalities and Indigenous communities renovate, repair and retrofit existing community and cultural infrastructure.

The one-time grant was designed to help honour the province’s past, showcase the present and inspire future generations.
