This morning, the Ministers of Local Government and Housing and Community Development were joined by local MLAs and CFC Director Kristina MacMillan at a funding announcement for Winnipeg's new NorWest Co-op Community Food Centre, one of our 2013-14 partner sites. The $100,000 infrastructure grant will fund the creation of a commercial kitchen, community gardens, and an outdoor bake oven, spaces critical to the Community Food Centre's food access, food skills and education and engagement programs.
