We're committed to creating a space around food and nutrition, and to build a community which fosters a culture of healthy food consumption and education.

A Better Bite Community Kitchen is the parent division, under which New Dawn Meals on Wheels, A Better Bite Cafe & Catering, The Good Food Bus and various other programing initiatives operate. The revenue generated from A Better Bite Cafe & Catering supports New Dawn Meals on Wheels, which in turn provides an affordable and nutritional meal delivery service to vulnerable members of our community.

A Better Bite Community Kitchen

Nutritious Food with a Purpose

Since March 2017, A Better Bite has been nourishing our community by providing healthy, delicious, diet-specific meals to all New Dawn’s Meals on Wheels’ clients, catering to community and business events, and accessible, and educational food workshops and programming for members of the community.

In the past year alone, A Better Bite Community Kitchen prepared over 12,000 meals for Meals on Wheels and hosted over 1,300 program participants at our free workshops, events and programs.

Profits from A Better Bite Community Kitchen support New Dawn Meals on Wheels, which provides affordable, nutritional delivery services to vulnerable members of our community.

This revenue, along with grant contributions, goes towards supporting our goal to provide programming, events, and workshops free of cost to participants.
