People need food – enough food, safe food, nutritious food, and the right kind of food, to meet their needs.  The right to food is a basic human right that underlies and is part of all of our work.

 

Food also has important social meanings and roles. It is a way for people to communicate, to learn, to come together, to share and to connect to the natural world. In this way it provides great common ground for all of the work that we do.

We address food needs and issues by:

  • Growing food & providing a place for others to do so in our community gardens as part of our Urban Agriculture program
  • Bringing people together to share food through our community kitchen  as part of our Flavours of Diversity and Food Security programs, community lunches and annual neighbourhood events and festivals
  • Creating opportunities for people to learn about their food, for example through canning and preserving workshops in partnership with Not Far From the Tree
  • Providing healthy snacks to most of our program participants on a regular basis
  • Being a voice on food-related issues, for example through advocacy, coalitions and participation in larger food-focused movements
  • Sharing our knowledge and expertise with others, for example on community composting
  • Exploring new ideas for urban agriculture and farming
  • Supporting emerging  low-income, women and newcomer, entrepreneurs at Market 707
