Holiday Parties at HQ

Would you like to host a Holiday party for your staff with a socially conscious twist?

Hosting your seasonal party at our Growing Chefs! HQ allows you to simultaneously support our small local charity, while also contributing to food education in our community. Growing Chefs! HQ works on a social enterprise model, meaning all funds raised in-house flow directly back into our programming.

Growing Chefs! HQ can accommodate groups up to 80 people for a seated meal, utilizing both floors of this historic old home.

We are offering a delicious, traditional, two-course meal for $35+HST per person, with additional courses available (for a nominal fee) and we are happy to accommodate any dietary restrictions your party may have. Our Chefs are truly remarkable and our mission is to provide you with delicious, seasonal, LOCAL foods whenever possible.

As part of our socially-conscience efforts, we are proud to pay our staff a 'living wage' - thus passing additional savings on to you, as we do not automatically add an additional gratuity to your invoice. Rather, any additional funds directed to Growing Chefs! during these events are considered a direct donation to our School Project Program, supporting local food literacy.
