As we practice listening to the Spirit and looking for ways to love our neighbours, exciting opportunities and ideas are arising in our midst. One such idea is diakoneo provisions, a project birthed out of the Makers Collective in Fall 2023 by Little T parishioner Valerie Remark. diakoneo provisions is a creative approach to addressing food insecurity in our community, and one that may pair well with the Good Food Market. Valerie writes:
Food insecurity in Toronto is at crisis levels, and oftentimes, affordable meals don’t fully meet nutritional needs. Birthed out of a creative workshop hosted at Little T in tandem with this community’s desire for justice lived out, diakoneō provisions is a line of shelf-stable and rehydratable hot meals that are nutritionally dense and costs less than $3 per meal — less than the average cup of coffee.
