We have seen a steady rise in food insecurity within our beloved community. Many of our participants are facing challenging times with this issue, and we want to help them as best we can. 

We provide daily snacks, offer group lunches, have a free community meal every Thursday evening, and hand out extra takeaway meals whenever possible. It’s been challenging to keep up with the demand, so we are reaching out to the community for some help. 

We’re on the lookout for compassionate hearts and generous hands. Whether you’re an individual with a passion for cooking, baking and helping others or a local eatery with some spare servings of food, you’re just the hero we need.

Volunteers:

You’re welcome to prep meals, baked goods or desserts at home and drop them off at Thrive’s headquarters (807 Water Street, St. John’s, NL), or you are welcome to come use our kitchen to prepare a meal. 

Local Eateries:

Got leftovers at the end of the day? Let’s transform your surplus into smiles and support our community members in need of food together! Soups, baked goods and desserts are always excellent to give out to our participants. 

Our participants enjoy hearty meals, baked goods and desserts. There’s nothing quite like the joy of comfort food to fill the heart and belly.
