Thank You goes to all who attended this fundraiser food walk while celebrating all the diverse Festivals of the Lights within the Kensington Marketplace and the residential quarters!
All proceeds from the tour were donated to Akram & Hiyam of Akram's Shoppe. The amount of $196.78 was handed over after many hugs and thanks from Akram & Hiyam.
I didn't feel right about celebrating the holidays, knowing that they're recovering from a robbery that took place earlier in November at their newly re-opened store/eatery.Akram's Shoppe has been a part of the Kensington Foodies Roots walks since 1995! Akram is like my Lebanese Uncle and Hiyam is like my Syrian Auntie! Just one small business helping another!
For those of you who missed this fabulous foodies tour, it gets repeated Saturday December 11th, 2010 9:30 AM - 1:00 PM, but it will NOT be a fundraiser tour. Book now at firstname.lastname@example.org and get a chance to sample a wickedly rummy Jamaican Christmas cake while savouring an Ode to the Fruitcake!
