The gift, $1 million over five years, will support the crucial leadership and capacity-building activities of Community Food Centres Canada (CFCC) as we drive the development of 15 new Community Food Centres across the country over the next five years. 

"Brian and I are long-time supporters of The Stop Community Food Centre in Toronto. As a nutritionist, I know first-hand how critical access to healthy food is to ensuring good physical and mental health. We urgently need to support initiatives that work to ensure everyone has access to healthy, sustainable food and the skills and tools to grow and prepare it. That's why we were so excited to learn that CFCC is taking the Community Food Centre model across the country. We hope this gift will encourage others to support this important initiative." — Joannah Lawson

"The Lawsons' support over the years has been integral to helping us establish the Community Food Centre model as a progressive and preventative solution to the problems of hunger, poor health and isolation facing many of our communities. This generous gift will enable us to create the capacity necessary to continue our work to build well-resourced and responsive centres in low-income communities across the country." — Nick Saul, President & CEO, CFCC

We'd like to extend our sincerest thanks to the Lawsons for their generous ongoing support.
