Food; keeping our bellies full and our lives social.

Food is more than a nutritious substance; it identifies us, and unites us.
Converse and Cook is about creating social spaces where individuals are empowered to explore their connection to food and their community by creating meals and dining together.

Breanna Weseen has been a student volunteer with Converse and Cook since the very beginning and has helped us grow to the program we are today. In Fall 2018 she did her Community Service hours with us helping us develop a guidebook that supports others in running their own cooking class education programming. If you’re interested in getting a copy of this guidebook to run programming in your community email us at  Breanna is now volunteering to with Programming done at the University of Alberta through the Campus Food Bank 🙂 We wish her all the best as she completes her degree.


If you’re a student at the University of Alberta currently completing a certificate in Community Service Learning you are more than welcome to connect with us about doing a non-credit opportunity with us. We’re pretty flexible and so we will work with you to find an opportunity that suits your interests. Just contact us at least 2 months before the semester in which you plan to start your non-credit opportunity so we can get the paperwork rolling 🙂
