YCAP Market

Wood’s Homes is excited to announce that our new food market – the Youth Culinary Arts Program (YCAP) Market – is now open for business!

The YCAP Market features food and products made by clients who are learning to cook and prepare homemade quality meals under the guidance of Red Seal chefs. Clients typically come from challenging backgrounds and are learning important life and employment skills.

You will find us at our Inglewood Opportunity Hub at 1008 14 St. S.E. in Calgary. There is ample, free parking!

Don't forget to follow the YCAP Market on Instagram!
