Share a Pot was brought to life from our memories of traditional family reunions around a bowl of nutritious soup. Unlike the warm atmosphere of a family dinner, seniors in our neighbourhoods were experiencing loneliness and isolation, and even physical frailty.
We thus imagined a community in which seniors unite around a pot of hot soup to rally and encourage each other to grow stronger and live well, regardless of age, gender, race, and religion. With tools, knowledge and a supportive community behind them, we hoped seniors would feel empowered to exercise appropriately, eat nutritious food, and build strong bonds of friendship.
