Discovery House to launch a safe space for women to build connections and address food insecurity

October 6, 2021

On 15 October, Discovery House Family Violence Prevention Society will launch Harvest Table, a gathering space intended to further support women and children who have experienced domestic violence as they heal, rebuild their lives and become equipped to live independently, free from domestic violence. This space aims to address food insecurity, social isolation and the adverse effects of domestic violence by bringing together women and children who have experienced domestic violence in a communal space where they can communicate with one another and prepare nourishing meals together while building healing connections. 

Located in the heart of the shelter, Harvest Table will facilitate socialization and create a community for mothers and children during a critical turning point in their lives. It has a functional inviting kitchen space with storage, open and clean workspaces and appliances.

The space was made possible in partnership with generous organizations and individuals passionate about ending domestic violence in our society. They include The Calgary Foundation, The Rotary Club of Calgary Downtown, Berkshire, Tom Loszchuk, Wimbush Landscape Construction Services, TradesGuild, P.E.A.R.L. Foundation, Home Depot Foundation, Allstar Corporation, Fuzion, Corian, Buzz Electric, Bartel and Gibson, John Loschuk, Black Forest Wood Company, Good Fellas Electric, Clearwater Charitable Foundation, Primco, Contour Countertop, Upper Canada Forest Products, Julian Tile, Schenk, Chinook Upholstery, Keith Olsen, Adrian Lay, McClark Mechanical, New West Design, Marathon Hardware, Big Al's Texturing, Casterland, Can West Legacy and Calmark. Our lead in-kind partner, [IN] SIDE ]OUT[ Design Studio, designed the space, coordinated and executed the renovation.
