The Richmond Community Based Programs with includes Community Kitchens, Success by Six and Nobody’s Perfect Programs held a Summer Open House on the 15th June, 2006. There are 2 open houses in a year, once in winter and another in summer.
The guest of honour was the mayor of Richmond, Malcolm Brodie. All the leaders of the community kitchens and volunteers who made this happen were presented with flowers as an appreciation. A big applause for Minoo who is the coordinator of the Richmond Community Kitchens.

The high light of the open house is the potluck. Each family brought their favourite dish. There were two long tables setup for the buffet and the tables were full of delicious food.
Here are some of the dishes:
Beef Samosas with some chilli dipping sauce.
Swiss rolls, I believed this is from Andrea of South Arm Community Kitchen.
Smoke Salmon appetizer.

There were more dishes that I did not have a chance to take the photo. I wish I could sample all the dishes. I will certainly come back for the next open house.
