Who We Are

Food4Good is the food programming division of the Jasper Place Wellness Centre, a community development organization in Edmonton. Food4Good is the result of collaboration between organizations and residents to address food insecurity in Edmonton's west end. We strive to create communities where food is a driving connector for learning, sharing, growing and celebrating.

Our work is based in 10 west end neighbourhoods, with four main focus areas: Growing, Cooking, Access and Advocacy.


We facilitate community garden space at multiple locations in the west end, including church properties and in private backyards. We also have a community compost site, and host workshops on seeding, container gardening, worm composting and many other growing topics throughout the season! If you're interested in exercising your green thumb, contact us to inquire about garden plot availability.


Through cooking and eating, we aim to build food literacy within our community, while sharing skills, cultures and reducing social isolation. We hold cooking workshops and teach kitchen education to elementary students through our local Boys & Girls Club and schools.


Increasing access to healthy, affordable and culturally-appropriate foods for all is a large part of our vision. We are currently run Low-Cost Markets every other Wednesday on Stony Plain Road. Through bulk buying, retail partnerships, and healthy food donations, we are able to provide fresh foods to our community at 30-50% lower than grocery store prices. Our Good Food Box program provides family-sized healthy food boxes at low cost. Check out Our Events to see the upcoming program schedule.


We emphasize the assets our neighbourhoods have to offer and build relationships between individuals and organizations. We want to provide opportunities for community members to find their voice on food security issues and their systemic causes, while supporting people to become advocates of change in their own networks. Join us for a food documentary screening or other community action event!

We are proud to have been recognized as a Good Food Organization through Community Food Centres Canada since 2015. This means we are part of a national network of organizations working towards a healthy and fair food system by offering programs that build health, equity and skills.
