Community Partners

Throughout The Gourmet Grocer & Cafe’s evolution, a sense of community has always been a part of its core values. Contributing to our local communities is an integral part of the culture of the Gourmet Grocer. We value our local community of Birdhaven and Melrose Arch who have been incredibly supportive of our businesses; especially the last couple of years during Covid.

We are committed to being a good neighbour in our community. That’s why we’re working with customers like you to help our communities thrive. Your support allows us to give more and do more to improve lives and make a positive contribution. Thank you for helping us make a difference.

Together, we’re helping many communities grow stronger.  From supporting NPOs to providing humanitarian relief, we’re stepping up to build better communities. 

At The Gourmet Grocer & Cafe, we believe that engaging with the community is a two-way street. Beyond making and selling great meals, bread, groceries, and tarts, we do our little bit of good for the world around us too.

Local Sponsorships

We support community celebrations, schools, and faith-based organizations that provide humanitarian support; among others. Whether it’s through a gift card donation or a sponsorship opportunity, we’re eager to lend a hand.

The two main charities that we partner with are the Angel Network and Lending Hands.
