         1. Food Programs

Food Market – At HOPE House we believe in both the power of food and the power of choice. Our Food Market allows community members the dignity of choosing their groceries through our innovative choice-based, bucks-based system. Much like going to the grocery store with a budget, community members walk through the aisles selecting the food and hygiene items which appeal to their needs.

Community Breakfast – Chef Kay and her team of volunteers create a community breakfast for the Royal City Mission. It is served Monday-Saturday from 10-11AM.

The Better Food Company - The Better Food Company is a social enterprise owned by Hope House and a collaborative project between Hope House and the Community Company. All proceeds from the sale of ready-to-eat meals support Hope House’s work directly. 

Food Skills Class - Food Skills Classes are offered twice a month at Hope House. Each month, a different healthy and flavourful recipe will be taught by Chef Kay. Participants will take home critical knowledge about healthy food preparation, valuable technical cooking skills and a delicious meal!

North Field Food Farm - A volunteer-driven community market garden that harvests incredible fresh fruit and vegetables for our Food Market and for distribution to other food security agencies across Guelph.

Hope House Café - Our café is a warm place where everyone in our community can enjoy a warm beverage and build healthy relationships with others. Over the years, we’ve watched community members from all walks of life bond and form wonderful friendships in our café – and we look forward to seeing many more.
