Guests - Melani Bastians, Elena Pugh and Shirley Dusmet

Speaker - Melani Bastians
Chef Melani Bastians started out with her food truck "Undone" a few years ago, and since then has been very successful with her restaurant The Green Eatery and Cup of Love coffee shop in Milton.
In October 2020, Melani started No One Goes Hungry, a program to help food insecurity and between November to April she has provided 15,000 meals to the needy in Acton, Georgetown and Milton with quality rescue food from donations. Melani will soon have access to Hope Christian Ministries in Brampton with more space to prepare and distribute meals to benefit more areas. The immediate help she will need would be for rent, insurance, food containers, bags and PPE.
Thank you Melani for a great presentation and for doing so much for the community.
