Bringing hope and good health to Guelph, one meal at a time
Delicious Direct delivers ‘mom approved food’ and a passion for community service
Freshly prepared meal deliveries can be a lifeline for those in need of healthy food. At Delicious Direct, Red Seal Certified Chef Dan Baker is raising the bar on taste and nutrition while serving his Guelph community.
Every Wednesday morning for the past three years, Baker has been donating freshly-prepared breakfast burritos for Hope House clients.
“I first heard of Hope House in 2018 with the Joy Home Tour, explains Baker. “An acquaintance was the co-ordinator and asked me to serve hors d'oeuvres at one of the homes. At that point I learned more about Hope House”, and a lasting partnership was born.
Hope House offers services and programs that challenge the stigmas surrounding poverty and allow community members to maintain their dignity and choice.
During the pandemic, Hope House received a grant to expand their breakfast program and approached Delicious Direct to provide prepared foods at a discounted price. Baker quickly agreed but insisted on donating his food. | Full Article |
