Who We Are
Our bottom line includes improving peoples’ lives.
Krackers Katering operates as a business but is managed on the belief that financial profit should never come at the expense of people's growth, independence and well being. Created to achieve both social and economic objectives, Krackers is staffed by individuals who have experienced barriers to employment, including people with mental illness and other challenges. Since 1999, Krackers has grown into a successful social enterprise where over 150 people have gained substantive training and work experience enabling them to move on to other employment opportunities in the community.
In addition to enjoying delicious and competitively priced food, Krackers' customers receive the added value of knowing that they are giving back to their community with each order they purchase.
Krackers Katering is a member of the Causeway Group of Social Businesses, a growing network of socially minded, not-for-profit ventures focused on transforming disadvantaged lives through training and employment.
Krackers Katering is grateful for the support provided by United Way East Ontario
