On January 30th, Niteo Africa in association with the Okanagan Chef's Association hosted the second annual Stone Soup for Literacy Gala at the Hotel Eldorado.
Niteo Africa is a Kelowna based charity that collects books that would otherwise be recycled from homes, schools and libraries. The books are packed into a shipping container destined for Uganda. Once arrived, the container is fitted with doors, windows and shelving and becomes their community library. The goal of Niteo's founder, Karine Veldhoen, was to provide the resources to nurture a reading culture for future generations of African children. niteoafrica.org
Guests were impressed with dishes created by the junior members of the Okanagan Chef's Association. Inspired by literature, the chefs set out to create an interesting small plate that would win over the crowd. In the end, the Three Little Pigs took first place.
