Community Food Projects

Rebels ITK is at the forefront of implementing a community-based participatory approach to help create impactful food related projects. With a vast array of experience in project management, community-based dietary choice research, event coordination, culinary art and music/video production Rebels ITK have access to a wide variety of tools to create unique and meaningful projects.

For over 10 years Donald worked with and for the Government of Canada, academic and private institutions, arts sector organizations, private, municipal, academic, and local partners on community-based environmental and health-related projects. He also has a creative side producing high-quality photography, music and video productions, and managing large-scale artistic events under his previous business venture Naskigo Productions.

Rawan is a trained chef and graduate of the culinary management program of Algonquin College and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Arts from the Studio Arts Program at the American University of Beirut specializing in sculpting. After arriving in Ottawa just 4 years ago she worked as a pastry chef at one of Ottawa’s most renowned fine-dining restaurants Beckta and later as a kitchen manager at award-winning Stella Luna Gelato Café. She also teaches cooking classes at the award-winning C’est Bon Cooking School in Ottawa.

Rebels ITK recently partnered up with the Conseil des écoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario (CEPEO) Café-Communauté program which offers incredible activities to new immigrant and refugee families in Ottawa. We were asked to host a cooking celebratory party in late August.  Check out our A Little International Village blog to find out which recipes were prepared and see the Rebels and the families in action!
