The Front Street Community Oven is a warm and inviting space for the community to cook, eat and gather together. It’s a project by the community for the community and is volunteer-run.
We’d love your help – here are some options:
Become a Firemaster
You’ll get to share the magic of the oven with others and create a welcoming space for all! As a Firemaster, you’ll open and close, light the oven, host others using the oven, and share tips and tricks for cooking with fire. Don’t worry, we’ll teach you all you need to know in our training and you’ll shadow an experienced firemaster to start off. Typically we work in teams of 2-7 people. It’s a great way to get connected in community.
Sign up below to learn about upcoming trainings. We will announce our next training before Sep 15th 2023, so please fill this form before then:
Share your cooking or baking skills
We’re always looking for folks who want to serve as chefs and bakers for community events. If you’re a home cook or even professional chef and want to share your gifts, let us know!
Offer your other gifts
We are always looking for help with grant writing, photo and video documenting, event planning, legal document review, and lots of other things. Everyone has something to offer! Whatever your gift or skill, let us know if you’d like to help out.
While the Oven is volunteer-run, we do have costs like insurance, supplies, staff coordinator, and more. Help us cover our costs and make the oven successible through free meals and free family bookings for our neighbours on tight budgets.
