The FoodWorks program is the latest social enterprise to be added to OCH’s employment programs. FoodWorks is an investment into the future of at-risk youth. You can trust that FoodWorks meals are prepared and delivered fresh, 3 times a week to your door. We take the hassle out of meal prep and ensure that you are getting a delicious, protein and vitamin packed supper!
The goal of FoodWorks is to build and develop an inspiring and sustainable continuum of services to those who are at risk of losing their autonomy. Through this project, our hope is to bring youth and seniors together to strengthen communities and to address food security.
FoodWorks provides healthy, fresh, locally made meals delivered to your door
FoodWorks works closely with another social enterprise, Farmworks. Our farm business provides us with certified organic produce that is grown in Blackburn Hamlet
FoodWorks offers our clients delicious meals that are partially organic and made with fresh ingredients
Each meals costs $8 and typically includes:
· A main dish
· Two side dishes (a starch and/or vegetables)
A dessert can be added for $2
Our Preparation and Delivery Plan
In partnership with Causeway Work Centre, meals are prepared in Causeway’s commercial kitchen. Meals are delivered on cargo bicycles for 8 months of the year and by Vrtu Car Sharing during the winter season. Our route falls within a 5km radius of Causeway with the plan to expand as the enterprise grows.
We deliver fresh hot (and cold) meals between 3pm – 6pm, 3 days/week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Our service can be provided on a short or long term basis.
