Why this is Important.

"Like you, we believe that everyone in our community should have access to fresh and healthy food. Our newest HOPE House project invites you to join us as we collectively address food insecurity in our community through the sale of 100% Made in Guelph meals."

We're creating a Better Food System in Guelph.

To us, a Better Food System is one that is building community through better food. Here's how our project works:

1. You Purchase our Locally Sourced and Healthy Meals

Our meals are prepared using farm fresh produce grown in our own neighbourhood. We then partner with top local restaurants and chefs to create our 100% Made in Guelph meals.

2. 100% of your Sale Supports our Community Farm

Through the Ontario Trillium Foundation, HOPE House has access to an 8.4 acre plot of land in Guelph where we grow over 10,000 pounds of farm-fresh produce every year. All profits from our meals are invested into our community food work.

3. We Build Community by Sharing Food

In 2020 alone, we shared over $500,000 of groceries through our community food market and with other food security agencies in Guelph. By purchasing a meal, you help make our Better Food System possible.

Better Food.

For the same price as takeout, you can purchase a healthy vegetarian or vegan meal that's grown in your community and prepared by your community.

Better Community.

For the same effort as takeout, you can help sustain a food system where healthy food is shared with those who need it. We have a responsibility to share the food that our garden shares with us.
