About



Mushed By YOU

Mushed is made by local youth in the heart of downtown Strathroy at the Next Wave Youth Centre.

Under supervision, local youth prepare jams, chutney, salsa and sauces from start to finish. Youth gain skills and confidence in the kitchen while learning employment and life skills to help prepare for future success in the work place.

With every purchase of Mushed, customers contribute to helping local youth build skills, confidence and independence to reach their potential.

There are so many things I am grateful to YOU for. They believed in me, when I didn’t believe in myself and helped me get my strength back. Thanks so much. YOU make a difference.
