About the Program

Farm to Food addresses issues of both food waste and food insecurity, while also creating jobs and work experience for low-income individuals.

Through the program, excess produce is rescued from local farms and prepared into healthy, nutritious meals at the Unemployed Help Centre (UHC)’s state of the art kitchen in Windsor. All meals are prepared by graduates of UHC’s culinary skills course under the supervision of a Red Seal Chef. These meals are then shared with people facing hunger through food banks and hunger-relief agencies across Ontario.

How Farm to Food Works


Fresh vegetables that can’t be sold by local farmers are sent to Windsor’s Unemployment Help Center (UHC) 


UHC’s culinary apprenticeship grads turn the produce into meals (and gain valuable work experience!)


These nutritious, prepared meals are frozen so they keep until they are ready to be eaten 


We ensure meals are safely distributed by chilled transport to food banks across the province
