This promising practice is an initiative offered by Simon Fraser University (SFU) to international undergraduate and graduate students. It relates SFU’s experience in providing community cooking workshops and offers suggestions on why and how other post-secondary institutions might host similar workshops in their settings and expect comparable outcomes from such efforts.
