About this event

You are invited to Operation Come Home's annual Breakfast on the Rideau event. This year we are hosting breakfast in person at the Horticulture Building at Lansdowne.

On October 5th, attendees will receive our delicious breakfast, conceived by our executive chef Tim Stock, and prepared by the staff at our Foodworks social enterprise.

The guest speaker this year is Canadian icon Perdita Felicien. A two-time Olympian, two-time world champion, and 10-time Canadian champion in the hurdles, Perdita has gone on to become a great TV broadcaster. You may have seen her hosting the Olympics on CBC, or hosting All-Round Champion on TVO.

Perdita's latest venture is as an author. She recently published the memoir My Mother’s Daughter, the story of her mother Catherine’s love, grit, and faith through racism, domestic abuse, and homelessness.

Each ticket is $75, and includes our gourmet breakfast, automatic entry into our door prize contests, and a tax receipt for $50, the charitable portion of your ticket.

Here are the event details:

  • Breakfast on the Rideau 2022
  • Wednesday October 5th at 8:30-10:00am

All proceeds from this event support our drop-in centre, providing youth experiencing homelessness with immediate access to personal protective equipment, food, and other personal care products. Through the drop in we also connect youth with further support through counselling, employment assistance and housing support.
