Riversyde 83 is moving on to the next phase of construction.
Tuesday morning at the former LCBO in Downtown Simcoe, community partners gathered to mark the occasion as the group moves foward.
Inside it’s currently set up like a ski resort, but architectural plans were displayed showing the community kitchen where people can learn to cook. It will also house a cafe.
Church Out Serving had many people to thank for this step forward, from businesses to government funding to local churches.
Evergreen Heights Pastor Jeff MacLeod was on of the many speakers on Tuesday morning who has seen this type of facility come to fruition in Hamilton and knows this is a big moment for the county.
The building will be open to the public November 18th from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.
Anyone who is interested in hearing more about the unique business is invited to come on out.
Among many other things, Riversyde 83 will offer a teaching kitchen which encourages hands-on learning in food preparation, focusing on local seasonal produce, meeting rooms for groups and clubs, an info hub to share local resourcees and programs and a trendy cafe offering roasted coffee, tea, a tasty menu, a WiFi hotspot, a pay-it-forward option, and a outdoor patio.
