From the Editors

In this edition we will highlight individuals who help us connect to learn about ourselves,
understand further recovery, get support that impact health and wellbeing or become an
activist with a passion for a worthy cause.
Last year really showed us how important that human connection is. We took for granted,
a fleeting touch, kind words, a genuine welcome smile, until the global pandemic presented
itself and made us re-think re-arrange -re-invent our lives.
Food 4 All – Kate shares her inspirational story overcoming postnatal depression and
launching “Cake is Happening”. Community Profile Impact Cuisine Jeffrey Simon talks food
poverty “It’s an eye opener to see that people are living “hand to mouth”.
Nonetheless, our human connections became stronger as a result of the shared awfulness
of the spectra of Covid-19 leading to unrestricted looks and words, developing into
worthwhile communication.
