Impact Statement Souper Meals is a fun, welcoming, safe place where people on a mental health journey have a sense of belonging and enjoy themselves. For some the program gives them the opportunity to enter the workforce. For others it helps them to get up in the morning, be part of something, and have structure in their day.
By sharing your time you will improve the quality of life of those with a mental illness in our community through mentoring, preparing meals together and offering an affordable food service to our community.
Description Souper Meals is a busy and supportive food services training program for clients with mental illness. Participants in the program prepare nutritious homemade meals. These affordable items are then sold to clients connected to the mental health system.
As a volunteer you may coach a Souper Meals participant in the kitchen or assist with food preparation yourself. Other volunteers may interact with clients from the community at the busy sales desk. Whatever role you assume we can pretty much guarantee that you will have a lot of fun.
