On Tuesday’s Morning News, Jessica learns how Share the Wake is helping kids enjoy the summertime and Kevin finds out how to handle food safely around the BBQ and when camping. Also on the show, Saskatchewan business challenge finalists Vivid AutoGraphics and Ward 7 councillor Mairin Loewen on a downtown parking study.

Share the Wake to improve kids lives

I love this program.

I think it’s such a great initiative for kids who can’t afford summer camps or extracurricular activities in the summer time. This gives them the opportunity to get out on the water, wakeboard, tube, learn some yoga and finish the day off with a hot dog and s’more roast.

This program is limited right now to Big Brothers Big Sisters, but being that this is only the program’s second year, it’s hoping to grow!

BBQs and safe food handling

Well, I learned a lot. When handling raw meat, of course I wash my hands before touching anything else, because, let’s be real here – I’d be sick a heck of a lot if I weren’t for that.

But the idea of having an isolated cutting board for meats? Nope. Never occurred to me. I wash the heck out of my cutting board when I’m done with it. It’s second-nature.

All the same… well-played, bacteria.
