Enjoy edition #4!

Donnie and Culinary Ink are looking out the window and the weather is warming and the ground thawing, which means #foodbikes are around the corner. Culinary Ink had a great few weeks of operation in the fall and is looking forward to rocking three bikes around town in late March/early April. As you might remember, Culinary Ink raises funds and awareness for the Kelowna Community Food Bank, Metro Community and Soles4Souls Canada. Check them out at www.culinaryink.com and on Facebook to find out what tasy socially conscious comfort food they are serving this week.

Culinary Ink is also looking for THE ONE.

“Exiting my business soon and moving on… Lots of nutty things floating in head, none are sticking. Fuzzy, scary and sort of funny all at once. I’d happily welcome tourism business ideas.”

“Got promoted to Training Coordinator at Penticton Search and Rescue. Huge honour. Helped rescue a nice couple from atop Frosty Mountain a couple weeks ago; Cormorant is an amazing machine!
Had a nice visit to our new coworking friends up in Vernon BC! Check them out sometime! Have added a new training event to the Power Hour Series – Opening a New Restaurant in BC, along with A+ Business Plan Writing, Financial Literacy from the Bankers Perspective, Leasing 101, Launching a New Business for Mompreneurs. Don’t laugh. Moms are incredibly entrepreneurial!!”

“Here is a video that was (sort of) recently released about our trip to the Homeless World Cup in Santiago back in September last year. https://vimeo.com/114667066

One of our local Kelowna Kodiaks Street Soccer players (James) got selected to go play for Canada at the Homeless World Cup and I went with him as a support worker. The video is fantastic.”
