Fresh Roots Café and Catering is an innovative social enterprise component of Canadian Mental Health Association Grey Bruce – Mental Health and Addiction Services. The catering portion of our enterprise has been operating successfully since 2017, and the café opened its doors in 2022.
Fresh Roots employs people with mental health experience, some who have never worked, and some who haven’t worked in a long time. Our goal is to create a space for our employees to learn and grow in a supportive environment that reminds them of just how awesome they are! Fresh Roots is a community café, that strives to provide everyone who walks through the door with a warm and inviting atmosphere for a reasonably priced meal and connection with friends! All profits are put back into Fresh Roots to operate and develop the initiatives.
Fresh Roots Café and Catering is simply: A home, a job, a friend.
