Community Food Centres Canada is excited to be participating in Waves of Change: Sustainable Food for All, Food Secure Canada's eighth National Assembly, which is taking place this November in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
In our July 3 webinar, A Place for Food in Public Spaces, we’re bringing in two dynamic community-builders to speak about their work cultivating vibrant public spaces, where food is a central pillar.
Wherever possible, Community Food Centres try to purchase directly from local farmers and producers as a way to support the local food economy and make fresh, nutritious, and ethically produced food available to those on low incomes.
Thursday, July 3, 12-1pm EDT
In light of the upcoming webinar on placemaking through food, we wanted to share a bit more about how Community Food Centres are working closely with parks and public spaces to cultivate community and improve food security.
As a follow up to our April 9th webinar Diet, Mental Health, and the Role of Community Food Programs, we asked both our panelists to answer a few more questions we didn't have time to get to through a Q&A here on The Pod.
Our April 9 webinar on Diet, Mental Health, and the Role of Community Food Programs was a big success and our most well-attended webinar yet.
THIS WEBINAR HAS NOW PASSED. However the video from the event as well as a number of resources and links will soon be posted in the Modules section under the title Nutrition and Mental Health, listed under "Issues".
On a Friday morning, bright and early, I catch a ride with some others from CFCC out to visit The Local Community Food Centre a few hours away in Stratford, Ontario. I’m still quite new to the CFCC team and am soaking in as much as I can about the growing number of sites we work with.
Hi there! Emily here — the new Knowledge Exchange Manager here at Community Food Centres Canada. (You can call me “the new Ross” for a little while, but I hope you’ll come to know me as Emily.) I’m thrilled to be joining the CFCC team, and to contribute to growing The Pod and its capacity for learning and exchange.
