Feeding connection and cooking up change which lasts a lifetime.

Fanjoy Culinary + Wellness Centre is a social enterprise whisking up innovative culinary counselling programs aimed at improving the physical, emotional & mental health of youth and their families. Fanjoy is committed to building stronger communities and revolutionizing how mental health services are delivered. And we are thrilled to announce that we are launching in Guelph this fall – with one-of-a-kind programs which nourish body, mind and soul.

Junior Chef Programs

Healthy lives for youth begins with healthy food and knowing how to prepare it. At Fanjoy we offer two streams of programming to support this ideal:

  1. Culinary Fundamentals – for any youth who want to learn how to to cook.
  2. Culinary & Life Skills – aimed toward youth who benefit from additional mentoring and mental health supports to reach their full potential.

*Focus is on enhancing the physical and mental health of youth aged 14-29 who need support to make or maintain friendships, may benefit from counselling BUT do not want to attend traditional “talk therapy”, experience or are at risk of depression, anxiety or other mental health concerns, have learning exceptions, have ADD/ADHD or high-functioning Autism, identify as LGBTQ2S+ or Non-binary, are ‘Out’ or on a journey of self exploration. Programs also support young adults attending college or university, youth who want to enter the restaurant industry for employment or post secondary education and families/care givers for all the above.

Gourmet-To-Go Meals

Chef Pam Fanjoy’s fully-prepared, delicious and healthy Gourmet-to-Go frozen meals are available for online ordering and home delivery. A portion of our profits support the Junior Chef Bursary fund – helping youth of families in financial need attebnd culinary programs.

* As we launch our new Fanjoy Culinary & Wellness Center in Guelph September 2021, our new delivery schedule will evolve & our weekly hot meal feature will now be available with pre-orders for delivery in Guelph on Fridays and curbside pick up for our Erin, Hillsburgh & surrounding customers by appointment.
