SMARTS Unit

The SMaRTs Unit operates our Sunflower Cafe, the Canteen, the Sunflower Boutique and also provides maintenance of the Clubhouse. 

Sunflower Café

Members and staff plan the monthly menu for lunches, suppers and snacks. We grocery shop weekly for the items needed to prepare the food. Members and staff are needed to cook meals, clean up, make sandwiches, bake, and perform other food preparation tasks.

Affordable lunches are available everyday at 12:00 pm.. The cost varies from $1.00 to $4.00 depending on what is being served. We offer fantastic hamburgers on Wednesday.  Please sign up by 11:00 am. for all lunches..

Supper is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays and is served at 4:00 pm..  Costs vary from $3.00 to $5.00.  Please sign up in advance by 1:00 pm..

We offer a “Meal Deal” supper on the 3rd Thursday of every month for $2.50. This helps people living on a low budget have a delicious meal closer to the end of the month.  Please sign up by 1:00 pm..

The Canteen

The Canteen is open daily. In the morning between 9:00 am. to 9:30 am., one free coffee, tea or juice is offered to help start your day. The Canteen sells meal cards,  so it is not necessary to always carry cash. Meal cards help some people with their food budget for the month. Snacks, drinks and sandwiches are available all day. Members are always needed to work in the Canteen assisting customers. Training is provided.

Clubhouse Maintenance

Members and staff share in the cleaning and upkeep of the Clubhouse. The tasks in this area include: sweeping and mopping floors, caring for the fish, dusting, vacuuming, changing garbage’s, cleaning bathrooms, making minor repairs, laundry, returning bottles and recycling.

Sunflower Boutique

The Clubhouse operates a "Boutique" we call the Sunflower Boutique. We sell gently used clothing and small household items. Tasks in the Boutique include sorting donations, pricing, hanging of clothing and serving customers.

We accept donations of clean, gently used clothing and small household items. People can drop off donations any time we are open. Money raised in the store goes into the budget to continue running Clubhouse programs.
