2015 Ontario Partner Selection

Community Food Centres Canada is pleased to call on Ontario-based organizations to submit an Expression of Interest to develop a Community Food Centre in 2015. Thanks to funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation and other supporters, CFC Canada is able to work with one new Ontario partner organization to join other Ontario Community Food Centres The Stop CFC (Toronto), The Local CFC(Stratford), The Table CFC (Perth), and Regent Park CFC (Toronto). This is an opportunity to collaborate with and access resources from Community Food Centres Canada to kick-start a Community Food Centre in your community that will bring people together to grow, cook, share and advocate for good food.

You are encouraged to carefully review the information provided below. This is not a traditional granting process; the partnership is intended as a long-term relationship that involves a significant commitment from your organization in terms of vision, energy and desire to incorporate a Community Food Centre into your mission, as well as a commensurate commitment on our side to see the project flourish long-term.
