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 you direct opportunities to participate in a better food system.
We are inviting you to join us at Hope House's North Field Food Farm and Commercial Kitchen to help grow and share produce and meals for our community.
Click here to sign up for our monthly meal production in the Hope House commercial kitchen! Every month, work with Chef Kay and our Partner Chef to hone your skills and help create delicious meals! Last full week of every month.
Our goal is to show that creating a better food system can start in your own backyard, and that we have the ability to grow food for everyone who needs it.
Each week, you have the opportunity to volunteer with the farm team to help grow 15,000+ pounds of produce annually that will:
1) Be shared with the 3,000+ food insecure community members registered through Hope House's food market
2) Become the foundational ingredients for all Better Food Company meals in 2023
3) Be used in the production of our Community Meals that will be shared with Hope House and other food security agencies in Guelph for free distribution to food insecure individuals
Join us at the farm and help us plant the seeds (literally!) for our community food work. We encourage everyone to participate in every step of the process to fully experience a better food system.
We have slots available every Saturday, as well as a few slots during the week, season and weather permitting.
