Season 4 of Cook It Up was carried out at Molly’s Bistro & Bakery in Minden. Following graduation, and recognizing that graduates needed opportunities to continue to build skills and connect, we created Cook It Up All Fall. Twice a week, delicious ethnic take-out lunches/dinners, cooked at SIRCH Central, were available to the public for a fee.

A new Ready for Retail training program, modelled after Cook It Up, started in January. It provided six trainees with customer service and retail training and one day a week the trainees took over Thrift Warehouse Haliburton to practice their skills.

For the fourth year, a Summer Bistro (formerly Simply Homemade) was run from the high school cafeteria during the summer for Haliburton School of Art + Design. The hot lunches were a hit!
