Rock Soup Greenhouse and Food Bank
Rock Soup Greenhouse and Food Bank’s mission is to address food insecurity in Wetaskiwin and surrounding areas from a perspective unique to any other food bank in Alberta.
1. Rock Soup is a grassroots non-profit, intentionally secular and separate of government, thus minimizing the potential systemic re-traumatization.
The food bank is setup as a general store with hours of operation and access to groceries intended to replicate the shopping experience. There will be no personal information or documentation required to access food and any information retained by 2. Rock Soup would be volunteered and only used for what it was consented for ie; testimonials, feedback, social media contributions, general statistics for funding purposes.
3. Rock Soup had an attached greenhouse that will provide individuals with access to year-round sustainable produce. The greenhouse is intended to balance community donation with the intentionality required to provide individuals with access to food that meets the nutritional standard in accordance with the Canadian Food Guide.
