The Good Food Organizations program aims to increase the capacity of community food security organizations to offer healthy and dignified food programs in their communities.

The program offers resources, customized training, grants, an annual conference, and opportunities to network and promote shared priorities.

By working together through a set of shared principles, the Good Food Organizations initiative connects like-minded organizations across Canada and beyond in a collective commitment to achieving a healthy and fair food system.

Benefits of the program

As a Good Food Organization, you’ll have access to:
  • Resources: Toolkits, manuals, videos, and other tools
  • Training: Customized online training sessions and an annual conference
  • Grants: Funding streams that support programs and capacity-building
  • Community: Alliance with a network of organizations doing progressive community food work


Community Food Centres Canada accepts applications to the GFO program on an annual basis. The application round for this year is currently closed and will re-open in the fall of 2019. Please email us to be alerted of the next application round.
