Hope House Guelph
The Better Food Company, a project of Hope House, is pleased to announce the launch of our Seed-to-Table Project!
Like you, we want to contribute to a better food system in our Guelph community. But, we recognize that as an individual, it's a daunting goal and it's hard to know where or how to start.
We created the Seed-to-Table project to provide simple opportunities for everyone to directly participate in a better food system.
We're inviting community members to Hope House's market garden as well as our commercial kitchen to help grow produce for your community, as well as help us prepare 750+ Community Meals! The meals will be shared with your community through Hope House's food market, as well as with other food security agencies in Guelph.
Choose a volunteer time slot for yourself (and a friend or family member) below. Instructions for the event you signed up for will be sent by email at a later date, including location and parking information. Please note, we can only accept volunteers over the age of 15.
We look forward to seeing you there.
