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 Food Programs

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 2022 alone, we shared over $667,000 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 farm shares with us.

March 2024's meal created by

Chef Dan Baker

Chef Dan Baker is the Executive Chef of Delicious Direct and an avid Hope House supporter. He has over 30 years of experience in food service and is a Red Seal Certified Chef.

Dan created Delicious Direct to offer nutritious and full course meals at an affordable price in the Guelph area. All recipes are made using fresh, seasonal, and local ingredients, and are reviewed by health care professionals to ensure the meals are healthy and balanced.

"I like working with the Better Food Co because I believe in their approach to dealing with food insecurity. I believe that food insecurity is a major issue today and the root of many other social issues. I find it extremely distressing that in this country that has the ability to produce so much food, people go hungry."

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.


We recognize that as an individual, it's hard to know where or how to contribute to a community food system. Volunteer on the farm or in the kitchen and join us in building a better food system, today.
