About Community Food Centres Canada

Net profits raised from Chefs for Change support the work of Community Food Centres Canada (CFCC), a national nonprofit that uses food to change lives.

We do that by building Community Food Centres and programs that give people access to good food, but also a place to belong, and contribute. Many people call them their second home.

Community Food Centres are all about being proactive and using healthy food, a welcoming environment and access to supports as a way to prevent the chronic health conditions and isolation that disproportionately affects people living on low incomes.  

CFCC is driving the development of Community Food Centres across Canada — there are currently 10 across the country, with several more slotted to open in 2019.

To find out more about how CFCC is bringing people together to grow, cook, share, and advocate for good food for all, read our most recent annual report or visit cfccanada.ca.
