New stove for CMHA

The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) received a brand new stove, courtesy of the Community Foundation of the South Okanagan Similkameen.

“We were working with a fifty year old stove that had broken knobs,” said Leah Schulting, Executive Director. “Staff and clients are so happy to have a brand new, fully operational, six burner stove.” Good nutrition is essential for good mental health, and is an important factor in mental illness management and recovery.

Canadian Mental Health – SOS branch has always placed a great emphasis on the encouragement of clients to eat a balanced diet. Unity House serves nutritious meals seven days per week to people living with a mental illness. Last year staff and volunteers served over 10,000 meals to mental health clients, who are members of Unity House. Some of the meals on the menu this week are: cream of mushroom soup, lentil soup and biscuits, and chef salad and garlic toast.

This stove will allow CMHA to continue with the meals program.
