We are proud to bring fresh, nutritious lunches to downtown Winnipeg’s diverse community … and even more proud that our food is prepared and served by work experience students with cognitive and developmental disabilities.
We’ve partnered with Changes Supported Living Services Inc. (Changes) – a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing individual, personalized services to adults requiring support in their homes and communities – to create Winnipeg’s first restaurant staffed almost entirely by people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Our Vision: Employable individuals, healthy attitudes
Our Mission: Training people. Creating food. Serving community.
We Value: Nurturing potential. Social responsibility. Celebrating diversity.
We’re proud to help our students prepare for the future and take control of their careers – all while delivering delicious confections to downtown!Learn more about Changes and our other partners.
