Food Programs

Charitable Food Initiatives

The non-profit SIRCH Bistro & Bakery offers affordable nutritious breakfasts and lunches, as well as fresh baked breads and treats in Haliburton Village. Local produce is used whenever possible.

Some innovative partnerships have evolved.  For example, our Artisan Baker  picks up spent grain used in the brewing process from Haliburton Brewery, and makes it into delicious sourdough bread.  The brewery then purchases the bread to use on their charcuterie boards. 

The Bistro hosts various events and can be booked for meetings and events.  In one end of the Bistro, we have a mini-Thrift Warehouse, to show customers the great variety and quality of goods that we have in the much larger store in Industrial Park.

The Bistro has two programs that address food insecurity, and isolation: Community Kitchen, and Lunch Is On Us. 705-457-1700

Sirch is a precious gem with delicious food, welcoming staff and a great atmosphere. You are always guaranteed a hearty meal at A reasonable price. Nothing fancy but always well made soups, sandwiches and entrees. The menu changes daily and they use as many local ingredients in the food as they can. The bakery items are always baked fresh with delicious muffins, cookies, breads and syrupy butter tarts. There are foods frozen to take home and other local artisanal options like honey and maple syrup. Definitely make your way to Sirch to support their community initiatives and eat a delicious meal. We also took advantage

Excellent food (vegetarian options available) served on fine china. Mushroom soup, quiche and desserts were fabulous, but the savoury rustic pie (sweet potato and beet galette with goat cheese) was unbelievable! Stopped by for a Saturday apres ski lunch and enjoyed toe-tapping, sing-along, live music by Lauren and Bill Candy. Lovely selection of desserts and freshly baked breads. Prices are quite low for the quality of food coming out of this kitchen Staff are on the ball! Providing great service with a smile. This place is a real gem! I'll return!

Community Kitchen

Community Kitchen brings volunteers together at the Bistro on Mondays when it is closed to the public.  Volunteers gather, and together with the chef they prepare thousands of nutritious meals annually. The meals are frozen and then distributed through health, community service and non-profit housing organizations in Haliburton County and North Hastings.  (Prepared meals are essential for those with lack of cooking skills, food insecurity, challenges with mental health, addictions, or illness, as well as those who are homeless, frail or elderly.

Generous farmers, gardeners and growers as well as food banks and grocers donate significant amounts of produce to help the program. Community Kitchen is funded entirely through donations and fundraising.

Once a week from November to March SIRCH offers Lunch Is On Us, a full meal at no charge at the Bistro. Everyone is welcome -- it’s our way of saying thanks to a generous community.  It also offers a way for food insecure community members to eat out, and for anyone feeling isolated or alone to join in the fun and meet other people.  People love that local musicians will often donate a couple of hours of their time to play during lunch.  Lasting friendships have been made at Lunch Is On Us.

“The food you provide enables me to use what little money I have for fuel, diapers and food for my family.  Without the help I receive through SIRCH, I would have to choose what I would do without.”

"As a partnering organization, we access nearly 600 meals per year from SIRCH Community Kitchen.  Having access to these meals, with no questions asked helps us provide more food security to our clients."

Applesauce2

Applesauce Project

The Applesauce Project  is an annual event where property owners will pick wild apples on their property and bring them in to the
Bistro.  Then Community Kitchen volunteers converge for a special day where apples are cooked, sieved and made into servings of applesauce or apple crisps.  Those are handed out free to recipients of our Community Kitchen meals, who can use more fruit in their diets.
