Community Food Centre Model

Good food is just the beginning

A Community Food Centre is a thriving, welcoming space where food builds health, skills and community. It provides emergency food access in a dignified setting that allows people to regain their self-worth. People learn cooking and gardening skills there, and kids develop positive attitudes towards healthy foods. Community members find their voices on the issues that matter most to them, and people find friends and support. 

This module explores our definition of a Community Food Centre, and answers questions about our work of scaling the CFC model up and out across the country. See the videos above and find additional resources to the right.
