What is Sam's Place?

Sam’s Place is a café and used bookstore where youth gain new skills and experience in a supportive environment. Our Sam’s Place community has nearly 200 volunteers of all ages who are new and experienced in the food industry. We work and train side by side to learn new skills, share experience and provide tasty food as a welcoming hub in the Elmwood community.

Sam's Place is run by Mennonite Central Committee Manitoba and made possible by a vibrant community of dedicated, hardworking staff and volunteers.
