ABOUT US

Mennonite Central Committee Ontario, Stirling Avenue Mennonite Church and The Raw Carrot Soup Enterprise have teamed up to start a location in Kitchener.

Raw Carrot Extension Site Manager Jenn Klassen has a big heart for people in need. She started working with a large “Saturday Supper” program at Stirling Avenue Mennonite Church a number of years ago where 150-200 community members come for a meal. It was out of this initiative that one young man said to her “I just want to feel useful”. It was these few little words that resonated in Jenn’s heart and planted the seed for her future work with The Raw Carrot. In 2018, Jenn was part of a site visit to The Raw Carrot when MCCO was exploring a partnership with Stirling Mennonite Church & The Raw Carrot. Immediately, she saw the value of people “being useful, being involved and having a reason to get up in the morning, something to do, something to be counted on for”. Jenn interviewed for the job and we knew within moments that she was the right fit! You can find Jenn at Stirling Church cooking up delicious soup with her staff members!!
