DUNNVILLE—Walk into the True Experience Centre located at 201 Forest Avenue East in Dunnville and you will find a brand new kitchen. This kitchen is the setting for a one-of-a-kind program called True Pantry, launching this month.

This inaugural True Pantry consists of a three-week program running from Tuesday to Thursday of each week and aiming to help people struggling with food insecurities. The current economy combined with unprecedented food prices has created a need to stretch household food budgets as far as possible. The goal of the True Pantry program is to help people overcome these challenges with the help of a cookbook called The Basic Shelf. Program Coordinator, Sharon Arnold, adds, “With The Basic Shelf cookbook, we can help participants plan meals that they never thought of before.”
