Who we are

The Root Cellar Food and Wellness Hub believes that hunger exists in the community and that the community has a responsibility to address this food insecurity in a manner ensuring the availability, accessibility and adequacy of food.

 

We believe in

  • protection of confidentiality

  • Serving people on an individual basis

  • loyalty

  • caring and commitment to those we serve

  • constant pursuit of excellence

  • trust, respect and understanding 

  • open and honest communication

  • creating a healthy community

  • respect for the rights and responsibilities of individuals

  • treating all individuals in a fair and equitable manner

  • integrity

  • accountability to those we serve

  • treating everyone with compassion, dignity and understanding

 

All people seeking our help deserve the highest quality foods that are possible for us to provide. We have found that the best way to meet hunger needs is in collaboration with others who share our common purpose. That is why we have collaborated with numerous other agencies and organizations in our community to achieve this.

We are working towards every door being the right door for individuals living in poverty and we have started the process of providing services to our client’s right inside the food bank. We have many programs that we run through our organization and access to help you find many others. See more about Programs.

 

As a collective, our volunteers believe and display to our clients that when action meets compassion lives change. We are so proud of all of our volunteers that give of their time. They are the true heroes in our organization.

We believe in treating all people with compassion and dignity and through that we hope to reach people and help them to create meaningful change in their lives which will reflect on our community.
