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.

The programs offered at the Regent Park Community Food Centre are:

  • Community Meal where everyone one can connect over a healthy breakfast or lunch. We serve fresh, nutritious meals, which are offered free of charge on a drop-in basis.
  • Community Advocacy where people find their voice and support each other through Community Action Training, the Community Advocacy Office, and participating together in social justice activities.
  • Food Skills where people can engage with each other and have the opportunity to learn and to share food knowledge at community kitchens.
  • Community Gardens where community members can come together to grow their own vegetables and learn new skills in both communal and allotment style gardens.
  • Park Coordination where we facilitate opportunities for the larger community to connect around the greenhouse, bake oven, and community gardens in the new Regent Park.
  • Taste of Regent Park, our weekly summertime festival, brings the community an affordable market, meal cooked by a local caterer, and movie in the park hosted by Regent Park Film Festival.

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.
