Feast for Education at Shipwright's Cafe

And finally, thank you to Chefs Calvin Burt and Bev Campbell for hosting the 4th annual Feast for Education at Shipwright's Cafe in support of Farmers Helping Farmers on Sunday October 4th.

The initiative came from Calvin and his wife Christine Schulze of Shipwright's. They attend Southwest River United just down the road from their restaurant and home. They learned about the work of Farmers Helping Farmers in 2012 while Christine was also leading the Sunday morning youth group. Southwest River United is twinned with Marinya School in Kenya, through Farmers Helping Farmers.
