  3. These vibrant and welcoming Community Food Centres (CFCs for short) are popping up all across Canada! Take a peek inside a few different centres, including the first one – The Stop in Toronto – as well as newer ones in Perth and Stratford, Ontario. Originally a food bank, The Stop was radically transformed in the late 1990s into a community gathering space that aims to boost food access and promote skill building and education around food and social justice. Not to be mistaken for a food bank as we usually understand them, Community Food Centres like The Stop do promote the sharing of good quality food – among lots of other things. The idea of gathering all sorts of programs under one roof for more impact is at the core of ‘Community Food Centres Canada,’ which emerged in 2010 with the aim of expanding the reach of these innovative food centres. Watch this video to learn more about the growth of CFC’s in Canada and see for yourself some of the much-needed roles they play in developing healthy communities and engaged citizens!
