Giving Back With ’76 Sips

Jo Anne’s Place Health Foods has been an active member of the community for the last 45 years, and we take pride in our initiatives to give back to those in need and support our local organizations whenever possible. Through ’76 Sips, we have the opportunity to provide excess food and supplies to local non-profit organizations and local food banks through a non-profit organization called Food Rescue.. This not only allows us  to reduce our waste, but also enables us to provide high quality food to those in need.

At ’76 Sips, we are proud to serve organic nutritious, delicious & sustainable fresh-to-go items, while giving back with our Community Impact Initiative .
Offering coffee, smoothies, sandwiches, salads, treats, baked goods & more!
At ’76 Sips, we care about the community…

Our Community Impact Menu includes:

  • Smoothie – The Good Samaritan
  • Sandwich – The Lunchbox
  • Salad – The Happy Camper
  • Chia Puddings – mocha, vanilla-spice and dragon-berry

Annual Cupcake Fundraiser

National Cupcake Day, Monday February 22, 2021

Our annual cupcake fundraiser is another great way you can be a part of caring for our community! 100% of the profits raised from our fundraiser will be donated to the Peterborough Humane Society and the Kawartha Lakes Humane Society!  We will be baking these cupcakes with love through our café ’76 Sips.

As a bonus, in honour our furry four-legged friends, we’ve also added Pupcakes! (Cupcakes for your dog). This way they can join in on the fun and celebration too! Cupcakes and Pupcakes are both available for pre-order or in-store purchase the day of our event! 

Cupcakes are available for purchase and pre-order pick up during store hours on Monday February 22nd at ’76 Sips Café, 1260 Lansdowne St W (Located inside Jo Anne’s Place Health Foods on Lansdowne), and both Jo Anne’s Place’s secondary locations, on Water street and in Lindsay!

Thank you for your pre-orders! Due to an incredibly positive response to our pre-orders, we are sold out of pre-order cupcakes! Cupcakes & Pupcakes will still be available for purchase the day of the event at ’76 Sips Cafe and all three Jo Anne’s Place locations while supplies last.
