Nourish Peterborough has a documentary to raise awareness around the need for food for so many in our community, and the organizations and food programs that are available to help out. The doc brings focus to ten of the organizations and community groups who advocate for food security within Peterborough, and addresses the need for healthy food for those living in poverty. You can rent the film free of charge at Have You Seen. I highly recommend it as it opened my eyes to how many are in need of assistance within our community and how many are here to offer help—including the likes of Our Space, Food Not Bombs, Collective Kitchens, YWCA and The Peterborough Gleaning Program.

David Goyette, Executive Assistant to Mayor Daryl Bennett, was at Splice last night to launch his new book, Heading to Happy. This is David's second book, and it took him just over three years to write it. Heading to Happy is David's personal collection of 40 learned lessons in the art of living.
David's book consists of 40 notes, but the most important one to him is based on the last line of The Beatles song "The End" on Abbey Road—"The love you take, Is equal to the love you make." That is the most important message David would like to convey.
All proceeds of the evening were donated to Our Space, and graciously accepted by Our Space Executive Director, Ken Whatman.
