Khodor and Nour Jarous, one of our two Syrian families in Almonte, have opened a catering business to sell their very tasty Syrian Foods. They have established a web site to view their menu and order foods at They have provided catered lunches and dinners in Almonte and Ottawa including some large catering jobs of 150 or more people. Khodor Jarous was a chef in Homs Syria for 12 years in his family’s, restaurant before the Syrian was. Both Khodor and Nour have passed exams and qualified under the Ontario Government Food Handling and Safety program.

The couple are in need of a volunteer to act as a business manager for them going forward. This would involve a few hours weekly to help with catering orders, arrange deliveries where necessary and help publicize their catering business.
