Welcome to The Table. The purpose of this event is to bring people together to share food and inspiring stories in an intimate setting. It is designed to be a cultural journey through food which is why it’s called “The Table”.
Join the Mi’kmaw Native Friendship Centre at the Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market for a cultural journey through food on Saturday, November 17, 2018 for The Table: A traditional Mi’kmaw Feast to benefit the Mi’kmaw Native Friendship Centre’s Christmas Cheer Program.
About the Mi’kmaw Native Friendship Centre Christmas Cheer Program
Christmas Cheer is a program of the Mi’kmaw Native Friendship Centre which helps urban Indigenous peoples to have the Christmas they deserve. This year is the 16th year! Christmas Cheer started with food hampers to help out the students struggling during the holiday season. It has grown to include families, Elders, single people, and our homeless community members. Since it started in 2002 the program has grown to helping 35+ families each year totaling over 560 Christmas Cheer packages given out to date. We have partnered with sponsors/community members to buy gifts for the children, turkeys and winter wear. This has been a great addition to our program. We also pay a local restaurant to supply our homeless clients with hot meals and beverages during the Centre’s Christmas break.
