Individuals come together in a centralized kitchen to prepare a nutritious meal, which they can then share with friends on-site and have plenty left over to take home. Programming includes educational sessions around meal planning, wholesome and nutritious grocery shopping, budgeting and other healthy lifestyle practices. This program is available in the City of London and Middlesex County.
Home support or personal support workers assist clients with meal preparation or prepare meals for clients who are unable to do so themselves. This program is available in the City of London, Middlesex and Elgin Counties.
