We are also excited to share that we will be giving away two beautiful aprons generously donated by World Tailors - where every item is made by a courageous woman from around the world. Learn more about their story here:


About Marlene:

"My name is Marlene Cornelis. I’m a home cook, recipe developer and food writer living in London (the other one, in Ontario, Canada). I’m passionate about what I like to call modern scratch living: preparing good food from scratch, reviving the art of relaxed hospitality, and doing the odd crafting or home updating project. I also like to share photographs from my ambles around London or travels farther afield."

Each year, the Southdale Education Fund will distribute, at minimum, a $1000 bursary to a deserving student. The bursary will be awarded to a deserving student facing financial challenges.

The bursary is intended to support students in whatever way that they need – whether it be tuition, textbooks, clothing, food, or bills.
