Brad Long, renowned Canadian chef.

“Food is fuel, food is medicine, food is love.”

Brad Long is a renowned Canadian chef with a career spanning over 30 years. He is a leader advocating for ethical, local, organic, and sustainable practices from dirt to dish and a strong, vocal leader in the national food scene. Long is currently chef and owner of Café Belong and Belong Catering, where his understanding of food is reflected in the fresh, delicious fare he procures and serves every day.

Myles Chaulk, former resident.

“That was definitely a part of why I kept cooking. Because food is survival.”

Chef Myles

Myles wasn’t always a great chef (he gave his friends’ food poisoning!). But he did get introduced to the food industry when he got a job at a diner. At age 16, Myles got a shock when his step-father kicked him out of the house. He thought, “if I go to jail, at least I’ll have somewhere to sleep.” Harrowing events brought him to Eva’s Place. There, he noticed the work of the food service staff member. “He came in every day,” says Myles, “… that man fed me every day for years. That was definitely a part of why I kept cooking. Because food is survival.” We’re so amazed at where Myles is now. He’s a successful Chef and he volunteers at Eva’s Place teaching residents how to cook. Don’t miss his keynote address at Eva’s Taste Matters. Myles is living proof that Eva’s transformative support helps young people build brilliant futures free of homelessness. You’ll be inspired!
