Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House Connections

“Michele Monno is originally from Triggiano, Italy. Michele started baking at the age of 12 continuing until he retired from CP Rail where he worked for 25 years. Since retiring he likes to keep his hand in baking for the love of it and gifting it to others!

When Michele needed some help, Vancouver Coastal Health, referred him to the Better at Home Program at Mount Pleasant Neighourhood House (MPNH). A Better at Home housekeeper suggested he visit MPNH which he did last year.

Michele enjoys stopping by for a coffee and coming for seniors’ meals. He says he keeps coming back because he likes the people and conversation. Over time MPNH has become like a second home to Michele where he likes the freedom to stay as long as he wants. ‘I’ve met quite a few people and started to make friends.’ “
