The Regent Park Community Food Centre is a partnership between CRC and Community Food Centres Canada (CFCC), a national organization that’s driving the development of Community Food Centres across the country.

It builds on CRC’s history of serving the community by expanding its meal, advocacy, food skills, park coordination, and gardening programs. And it uses the principles of the Community Food Centre model of creating a space where the community can come together to grow, cook, share, and advocate for good food.
Consistent with CRC’s mission, “building lives, creating community, together”, it provides community members with access to high-quality food in a dignified setting that doesn’t compromise their self-worth. It provides the space and tools to develop cooking and gardening skills and experiment with new foods.
And it provides the opportunity for participants to find their voices on the issues that matter to them, to make friends, and to find supports.
Along with other Community Food Centres being established in other provinces, the Regent Park Community Food Centre helps to increase access to healthy food for low-income Canadians while proving that food can be a transformative force in our communities.
