Join us for Food Court Social 2024! We are excited to welcome you to a culinary experience to raise funds for George Brown College’s Augmented Education Program (Aug. Ed.) in support of students with mental health and addiction histories.

Hosted at George Brown College’s Waterfront Campus, guests will be treated to an unforgettable culinary and entertainment experience.

Food Court Social will include:

  • Access to curated food stations hosted by Toronto’s top culinary talent
  • Cocktails, wine and beer pairings
  • Interactive event activations
  • An exclusive experience with an audience of ~500 supporters
  • A unique opportunity to network with other FCS sponsors and GBC Alumni

At last year’s Food Court Social, we shared the stories of two amazing Augmented Education graduates, Nathan Mandel, and Julio Valencia. These stories featured testimonials from the students and their employers highlighting the impact the Augmented Education Program had on their lives.

Augmented Education will benefit from 100% of the net proceeds from Food Court Social. Augmented Education, in partnership with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), is an innovative, tuition-free program helping persons with a history of mental illness or addiction overcome barriers to education and training, and helps them prepare for, find and maintain employment.

Here are a couple things these students had to say about the program:

I found out that I had resilience in me. The program allowed me to see that in myself.

– Julio Valencia, Construction Craft Worker Foundations Program Graduate, 2019 

The Augmented Education Program was able to take information that I already had, skills and passions, and then compound them into stuff that I could use in the industry.

- Nathan Mandel, Culinary Skills (Preparatory Training) Graduate, 2021
