Shop With Purpose: A weekly email blast to our shopping support partners that highlight needed grocery items that are on sale at local grocery stores.
Corporate Product Donations: Partnering with community-minded organizations to share the abundance. Food, cleaning, hygiene and infant care supplies are welcome donations from corporate or local business entities.
Individual Contributions: Ongoing donations and support from individuals and families that are part of our connected HOPE House family.
Community Food Drives: Whether it’s a neighbourhood, a townhouse complex, a sports team or a wedding reception, we encourage creative and fun ways to gather food within our community for the Food Market. We partner with small businesses to encourage monthly and seasonal food drives at their locations.
CROP (Community Resource Outreach Program): The CROP was formed as the result of receiving large quantities of grocery product from various organizations. It became evident that this product will best serve the needs of all people in Guelph if it is shared quickly out into our community rather than storing it up in our cupboards to be used only in our Food Market. We believe in operating from a place of abundance rather than a place of need. When we are fortunate enough to receive large product donations we satisfy the immediate needs of our Food Market and make the abundance available to our local neighbourhood groups, senior’s and health facilities and poverty relief agencies in the city.
Ongoing items needed to keep our Food Market stocked for our clients:
Pancake Mix and Syrup
Macaroni and Cheese
