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.

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.

August 2022's meal created by

Chef Thuy and Chef Sydney from the Cornerstone

The Better Food Co is excited to partner with not one, but two talented local chefs and proud new owners of The Cornerstone!

After months of renovations both inside and outside of the popular downtown Guelph restaurant, Thuy and Sydney are happy to welcome back their regulars, and also greet some new customers with a fresh face.

The Cornerstone boasts a fully vegetarian and vegan menu. Thuy and Sydney's vision for the restaurant is anchored in community, environment, and fresh food and the ways in which they intersect.

Together, Thuy and Sydney aim to grow and sustain the close-knit community of Guelph through food, coffee events and live music. 

We can choose to use our money for good.

We've worked hard for our money. Let's have it work hard for us by supporting socially conscious community work.

Support our Better Food System.

For the cost of the takeout meal, you can purchase a meal today that supports The Better Food Company and our community work.

The Seed-to-Table Project

We recognize that as an individual, it's hard to know where or how to contribute to a community food system. We created The Seed-to-Table Project to provide you direct opportunities to join us in building a better food system, today.
