Building a better food system, today.

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 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. 

Volunteer for kitchen production

Click here to sign up for our monthly meal production in the Hope House commercial kitchen! Work with our Partner Chef to hone your skills and help create delicious meals! Last full week of every month. Volunteers must be 18 or older. 

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 9,000+ 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 2024

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


Volunteer at North Field Food Farm

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.
