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.

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.
He also explores how Community Food Centres Canada is working with partners across the country to build centres that will bring people together to grow, cook, share and advocate for good food.
On a personal note, I'm afraid it's time for me to say goodbye to my post as Knowledge Exchange Coordinator. It's been a real pleasure sharing stories, resources, webinars and more with you on The Pod for the past year an a half. Thanks for learning with me on this journey.
