Learning & CoNnection
Community Kitchen runs 3 hour sessions weekly out of the Morden Alliance Church, and provides education in basic culinary skills and food literacy, as well as providing community support and social connection for its participants.
Examples of classes that Community Kitchen offers include bread making, cooking meat, canning, etc. with a focus on teaching about foods that are nutritious, cost-effective, seasonal, and/or local. If you are interested in being involved with Community Kitchen, either as a participant or a volunteer, let us know, we love to include you.
Support & Strength
We host free community meals on the third Tuesday of every month, at 5:30 pm at the Morden Alliance Church. All are welcome to register. Follow us on social media for more details!
DROP IN CENTRE
Our Drop In Centre runs on Tuesday from 12 to 4pm and Thursday from 6 to 9pm.
The purpose of drop in is to provide a place for people to socialize, make friends, and find out how to access local services.
The Drop In Centre has lots of games, computers, free drinks, even laundry facilities. Come on by, we would love to sit down and have a chat!
Huge thank you to the Morden Area Foundation whose generous support made the games, laundry and computers possible for the Drop In Centre.
The Morden Community Food Bank runs on Tuesday afternoons from 12:30 to 4:00 out of the Community Centre at 500 Stephen Street, and provides fresh food and pantry staples to those in our community needing food.
We work closely with Morden grocery stores as well as the public and other non-profits to gather sufficient healthy food each week. We are always looking for partners in this task as we serve approximately 100 Morden area families each week. We invite you to hold a food drive, to contribute to our food bins, to volunteer and to donate.
If you are in need of food, or know someone in need of food, please contact us, we are here to help. Sign up at 500 Stephen St. on Tuesday afternoons between 12:30 and 4:00pm.
BETTER ACCESS TO GROCERIES
Sign up for the BAG program, then pick up your BAG on the 3rd Monday of each month. BAGs cost $10 and we load them up with a value of approximately $15 worth of fruits and veggies.
The BAG Program provides Morden Area residents better access to fresh and lower-cost fruits and vegetables, as well as promote community engagement activities and healthy eating.
Community & Health
We are thrilled to be part of Direct Farm Manitoba’s Community Food Currency Program since the Summer of 2020. The program provides free vouchers to help Morden area residents access fresh, local food from the Morden Farmer’s Market.
We work with local services to identify families who would most benefit from this program.
Morden Farmers’ Market
A farmers’ market is a community-based marketplace where local farmers, growers, and producers gather to sell their fresh, seasonal, and locally grown produce and products directly to consumers. It is a vibrant and lively place where people can buy a variety of fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy products, baked goods, and handmade crafts
Sense of Community
Community gardens are a fantastic way to bring people together, promote sustainable practices, and enhance the overall well-being of a neighborhood. Partnering with the City of Morden provides valuable support and resources to help establish and maintain these gardens
Community gardens are shared spaces where individuals come together to cultivate and maintain a garden collectively. These gardens are on Loren Dr, Morden and provide an opportunity for people to grow their own fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. Community gardens foster a sense of community, promote sustainable practices, and offer a space for education and social interaction. Participants share the responsibilities and rewards of gardening, creating a cooperative and enriching environment for all involved.
