Our Urban Agriculture initiatives include an 8,000-square foot garden at Earlscourt Park; a community garden at Hillcrest Park; and a greenhouse, a sheltered garden and the Global Roots Garden at The Green Barn. These sites yield over 4,000 pounds of fresh organic produce for our programs every year, and engage community members of all ages in learning how to use environmentally-friendly methods to grow fresh, local produce year-round.
The Community Cooking program brings people together to socialize and learn how to prepare nutritious, culturally diverse and inexpensive meals are communal cooking groups that bring people together to learn, cook eat and socialize.
Our Bake Ovens & Markets bring neighbours together around fresh, healthy food. The Good Food Market at The Stop features affordable, local food and free pizza-baking session at an outdoor wood-fired oven. The Green Barn hosts a year-round farmers’ market and community bake oven.
The Food Bank provides community members with a three-day supply of food once a month. The program places a high priority on providing as dignified an environment and as high quality food as possible.
The Drop-in is a safe welcoming place where community members can enjoy nutritious food, meet others and access information on social issues and community resources.
Healthy Beginnings and Family Support is a pre-and post-natal nutrition and support program for pregnant women living on low incomes.
Our After School Program engages children aged 8 to 12 in fun, hands-on activities that teach skills necessary to grow, cook and select healthy food and encourage positive attitudes towards healthy eating.
Our Sustainable Food Systems Education program teaches children from local schools where their food comes from with hands-on cooking and growing activities matched to the Ontario school curriculum.
Our Community Action program supports community members to speak out about and work together on issues of poverty, hunger and inadequate income in the community.
