Food4Good and the Jasper Place Wellness Centre have partnered with Community Food Centres Canada (CFCC) to build a permanent place for food in Edmonton! We will be bringing all our programs together under one roof, and expanding what we can offer our neighbourhoods with the Food4Good Community Food Centre!
Community Food Centres are vibrant public spaces that bring people together to grow, cook, share, and advocate for good food. There are currently 12 Community Food Centres across Canada, including The Alex Community Food Centre in Calgary, which opened in 2016.
Food4Good has been working with CFCC through its Good Food Organizations program since 2015. We think Edmonton will greatly benefit from having access to this Community Food Centre and the programs it will offer, including community meals and affordable produce markets, community kitchens and gardens, after-school programs for kids, and peer advocacy support.
