Paying kindness forward
April 7, 2015
Hello my name is Jack Gmuzdek I am 9 and I’m in Grade 4 French immersion. Today I am going to tell you about the SIRCH Cook it Up program at Baked and Battered. I appreciate it a lot. So this is the story of how I came to like Peruvian food. It all started one morning before school my mom was on the computer. On Facebook we saw something and that something was food! I love food, so I went to school and at 10:35 a.m. my mom picked me up from school to go to Cook it Up. We had Peruvian food. The waitresses were very nice and Janine Papadopoulos, who works there came up to us and said this is about gratitude. I saw many people that I knew and we were talking and laughing. This program inspired me to show more gratitude. I got a menu and on the right side of the menu there were these questions; Have you ever had someone do something for you out of kindness? How did you or will you pay it forward? How has dining at the Cook It Up restaurant changed your image of our community? What are you grateful for today? What does being grateful mean to you? These are my answers to the questions. Yes Janine Papadopoulos was being very kind to me and my mom. I will tell all of my classmates about it. Helping each other more like a team. The people who made the food. Being happy that somebody did something nice to you. What are your answers? Special thanks to SIRCH and cook it up for creating this program. Each Monday you can go to Baked and Battered to have a magnificent meal. It is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. There’s also an appetizer lovely drinks and desserts. I highly recommend going to this program! Every week they have different foods such as Indian, Mexican and Peruvian. It is amazing the food is free and at the end you get a gift and you’re giving a gift by your presence!
