H.A.V.E. CULINARY TRAINING SOCIETY – AN OASIS OF CALM ON THE DOWNTOWN EASTSIDE
JANUARY 1, 2019 BY JO-ANNE LAUZER
It is 9 am on a Friday morning, the traffic on Powell Street is constant. The one-way street is busy with cars and buses heading downtown and with people walking in either direction, some quickly passing by with heads down while others stop to chat and have a smoke. At the end of the block on the corner is the Sunrise Market, already bustling with people lined up at the till buying their groceries for the day or rummaging through the rows of colourful vegetables and fruit in large wooden bins outside by the sidewalk.
