A Free fruit and vegetable market intended to support low income families and individuals to meet their healthy food needs.
The Market is open on Wednesday nights from 6:00 to 7:30 at the small parking lot beside Waverley Drive School at 140 Waverley Drive. In bad weather it will be held at Portable # 6.
Families and individuals can register and only need your name and address to qualify and although the market is open every week, registrants can come every second week.
Primary funding for the Market has been generously donated by Guelph United Ministries, an umbrella organization of Guelph’s United churches and ministries. Other local groups that support the market are Guelph Neighourhood Support Coalition, Chalmers Community Services Centre, Trinity United church, Holy Rosary Church, New Life Church, Waverley and Brant Neighbourhood Groups, and the Upper Grand District School Board.
To offer make monetary donations, fruit and vegetable donations, provide some entertainment or just get more information, please contact Barb McPhee, NEHM Manager firstname.lastname@example.org or drop by the Market.
