A Food Truck On a Mission

We believe that recovery saves lives. We believe in long term treatment, and that everyone who wants recovery should have an opportunity to get it. Did you know 90% of people that need treatment in Canada do not receive it? It’s a staggering number and it is time to change it. We have long term treatment programs, an award-winning Family Healing Program, long term housing for alumni as well as a budding alumni program, and a recovery food truck. 

The food truck is part of a social enterprise project under the Fresh Start Recovery Centre’s umbrella. All profits generated will go back into helping more men and families get well from the disease of addiction. We are here to inspire a message of hope and wellness. We employ and provide opportunities to people in recovery, and are working on changing the conversation surrounding addiction recovery. Addiction impacts us all, so whether you are in recovery, know someone in recovery, or are somewhere in between, there has never been a better time to bring this issue forward. Recovery saves lives and impacts families for the better. When you come to us, you can be confident that you will Eat Good and Do Good.   For more information or to donate to our project visit
