WHO WE ARE

GROW Community Food Literacy Centre is a registered charity in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Our goals are to assist and empower those with barriers to accessing and benefiting from good healthy food.

 We do this by offering a fresh produce market with pantry, community kitchen with opportunities to cook, and share good food while building community and breaking down social isolation. 

GROW is a community-focused model aimed at addressing some of the long-term food challenges low-income residents and persons with disabilities face in our community. 

 

GROW is strategically situated in the heart of Niagara Falls, operating in the former 4,000 sq. ft. Scouts Canada building. GROW is collaborating with a 34-acre farm in St. Davids, Niagara-on-the-Lake, to engage community members in actively growing and harvesting healthy and nutritious foods. 

OUR MISSION

Reduce hunger with dignity, build capacity and community, foster sustainability to support health, belonging and social justice in Niagara Falls through food literacy. "

PURPOSE &  DIRECTION

GROW will address two key strategic directions to combat food insecurity and promote healthier

lifestyles for low-income community members:

1. Healthy Food Access: access to healthy, local, and culturally acceptable food.

2. Food Literacy and Skills: information, knowledge, relationships, capacity, agency and the

environment to support healthy eating and to make healthy choices.
