Thank You, Dig Insights!
We are excited Dig Insights has partnered with Canada Day 2023, London, UK. They’re helping give Indigenous Youth from our Cooks with Stones program the opportunity to share their cooking skills, cuisine, and culture to a global audience in London.
Dig Insight’s sponsorship helps provide a Marquee Tent space and a Food Truck for Cooks with Stones at the Canada Day festivities in Trafalgar Square on June 29th. The Food Truck will be serving a menu designed by the Cooks with Stones students with, mentor and Indigenous Chef from the program, Scott Iserhoff.
Their sponsorship also supports Cooks with Stones students to showcase their cooking skills and cuisine at a catered lunch and network with the international business community at Canada House, on June 28th.
Thank you, Dig Insights, for this once in a lifetime opportunity!
