ACTIVITIES & PROGRAMS

Our purpose will be achieved by five core programs.

Organic Vegetables
GROW Market

This market makes fresh, local food more accessible to those living on low incomes. When people shop

for fruits and vegetables at the affordable produce market, their money goes a lot further and residents

can head home with loads of fresh ingredients to prepare healthy meals. The market and pantry offers fresh local foods including vegetables, fruits, and

unprocessed meats at wholesale prices, along with canned and other non-perishable food. 

Open every Saturday from 10:30am - 1:30pm

GROW Market is for individuals and families meeting the low-income cut off (LICO - see chart below). Please bring proof of income to obtain a membership card to the market. You may also pre-register by phone or email.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the centre. 

Market funded in part by the Government of Canada

Farm to Table Programs
COMING SOON!

Farm to Table programs provide people with the knowledge, tools, and confidence to grow and choose

healthy food for themselves and their families. 

 

Our farm garden provides a great source of fresh, healthy produce for our community meals and for our market and pantry. It also has many other benefits, including health, education, environmental, cultural and community-building.

COOKING & FOOD SKILLS Programs
COMING 2021

Food skills programs provide people with the knowledge, tools, and confidence to grow, cook, preserve and choose healthy food for themselves and their families.

Cooking programs help community members improve confidence and increase enjoyment in preparing nutritious and delicious food.

Through hands-on experience and the support of a community, people are empowered to take control of their health and nutrition and make lasting, sustainable changes to their food literacy.

2. Youth Cooking Classes

3. Community Kitchen

4. Budget Kitchen

5. Cooking as a Family

6. Food Preservation / Canning

COMMUNITY MEALS
COMING 2021

Community Meals provide opportunities for people to gather in a welcoming space for a free, healthy, and delicious meal prepared by a chef and served right to the table.

Community meals provide a chance to get together with friends, and make new ones. These meals reduce the barriers many community members experience to accessing good, healthy food for themselves and their families.

1. Thursday Night Dinner

2. Community Lunch (Wednesday)

3. Saturday Brunch

4. Heroes’ Lunch (1 st Tuesday) Specifically but not limited to veterans / first responders

SOCIAL JUSTICE ADVOCACY & EDUCATION PROGRAM
COMING 2021

Advocacy and Education programs support people to get involved in the issues that matter to them and equip them with the tools they need to take action.

 

They support people in building the skills they need to become advocates for themselves and for their communities, and highlight opportunities for them to lead in the push for social change.

GROW is planning to offer the following programs:

1. Advocacy program

2. School Outreach Program in combination with Food Literacy Skills in the Kitchen
