Waffles in the WarehouseSkip to Event Details
Wednesday, September 23 is the 7th Annual Waffles in the Warehouse presented by Your Neighbourhood Credit Union!
Waffles in the Warehouse – in its 7th year – is an opportunity to welcome business owners, influencers, and community champions virtually to our distribution centre for a morning of connection, impact and change.
This year – due to COVID-19 – we are doing things a bit different. We have re-imagined the event and are excited to host our first virtual event, allowing you the flexibility to network and enjoy powerful and engaging presentations from the comfort of your home.
COVID-19 has changed the way we live, work, and interact and has significantly impacted the food industry. This event will include a moderated panel discussion with industry experts as they discuss how COVID-19 transformed food delivery in Waterloo Region, and what the future looks like for The Food Bank and the Community Food Assistance Network.
