Let us introduce you to some amazing people.
Our partners are passionate about providing food security through equitable, sustainable means. They are problem-solvers and community-builders who care not only about increasing access to quality food in our communities, but also about how it’s done. And they do it well. It’s our privilege to work alongside them.
Become a Partner
Partnership offers many benefits to local organizations working in food security and provision: the power of collaboration and shared information with like-minded organizations, access to resources and expertise, an easy-to-use online fundraising platform and increased visibility.
If your organization wants to partner with us, or if you are interested in starting a new effort in the area of food security and sustainability, we can help.

Crossroads Community Meal
Grandview Calvary Baptist Church hosts a weekly, participant-led community meal for individuals in the Grandview Woodlands neighbourhood. Each week, up to fifty participants gather to prepare and share a meal together. The Crossroads Community program aims to be a safe, dignifying, and supportive gathering grown out of the many diverse contributions of those who attend.
The Community Co-op at Mission Possible harnesses the cooperative power of DTES community members to attend to their basic needs, build meaningful relationships, and find dignity and purpose through service to others. Co-op members volunteer a minimum number of hours each month, contributing to their own and others’ well-being by cooking and serving nutritious meals, helping out at Red Clover Farm and in many other ways.
SoulKitchen helps organizations create healthy and vibrant communities by welcoming the poor to the table and into the kitchen. With decades of experience in the hospitality industry and pastoral care, Chef Hannes Tischhauser and wife Louise offer consultancy, workshops, networking ideas, inspiration and ongoing practical input.
Westside Mobile Food Market
The Westside Mobile Food Market brings affordable, fresh, healthy produce to seniors and other vulnerable people who have a hard time accessing this kind of food because it is sold in stores too far outside their neighbourhoods and is too expensive. The Mobile Market is a joint effort of The South Granville Seniors Centre and The Westside Food Collaborative.
