Nourish Recap: Apple


On February 21st, Apple spent the afternoon in SKETCH’s industrial kitchen preparing nutritious meals for the young people in our program. As an employee engagement workshop, that blends food making with team building, Apple’s group of 13 staff prepared roughly 100 meals which were served the following day! 

While accessible to both culinary experts and novices alike, Apple was no apprentice as they’ve participated in 5 Nourishes over the last two years. Here’s a photo of their team from 2019!

Quina, SKETCH’s Culinary Arts Specialist who guides teams through the recipes, always caters the menu to be company-specific. For Apple, this meant using pie dough to redesign their favourite app logos, to place atop their freshly-baked apple pies.

Dear Friends and Investors,

Greetings from the SKETCH Project Home Team! We hope that you and your family are keeping well and safe during this time.

UPDATE: SKETCH is placing the capital campaign to purchase our studios on brief hiatus until the fall.

Our campaign has been a great success so far, with over $370,000 raised in funds and Community Bonds! However, in face of the COVID-19 pandemic, SKETCH is taking action to suspend the campaign to allow the time needed for those excited about our campaign to be in a more secure position to participate.

If you have already donated to the campaign, or purchased SKETCH Community Bonds, we deeply appreciate your commitment to Project Home. If you've just recently submitted your bond-purchase documents, we will still process your investment.

Have any questions about your donations or bond purchase? Please do not hesitate to contact SKETCH Executive Director, Rudy Ruttimann at

This summer, we'll be working with our campaign partners and SKETCH community to determine exactly when we relaunch in the Fall. We'll be sure to keep you posted over the summer.

You can still inquire about SKETCH, our capital campaign, and its progress at or by following us at @SKETCHToronto.

Thank you for your time, and we wish all the best for you and your family.

-The SKETCH Team & Campaign Advisory
