ContactYasi Zorlutuna, Lead Chef, Community FEWD - Food Equity with Dignity; Email:
DutiesFEWD is a mobile food security initiative that centers dignity, quality and accessibility - while diverting high quality foodstuffs from landfill.  
FEWD stands for Food Equity With Dignity (pronounced FOOD). We offer an equitable, dignified, and nourishing food source for community members no matter their economic status. FEWD approaches food preparation with the same methods used at celebrated farm-to-table restaurants and food businesses. There is no fixed menu. FEWD draws on the creativity, skills and flexibility of experienced cooks, allowing raw ingredients to be quickly transformed into delicious menu items; creating a continuous stream for getting surplus food out of fields, boxes, fridges and freezers - and onto dinner tables of families throughout our community.  
FEWD is setting up pop-up food stands on a regular basis to provide delicious meals to communities in Guelph. Check FEWD.CA for schedule or follow us on social media.  
FEWD needs volunteers to help with a variety of tasks ranging from admin support, social media, pick-up/drop-off produce and other items, supporting laundry needs and assist with grant and/or report writing.
