In 2015, CFCC began a partnership with Hamilton’s Neighbour to Neighbour Centre develop a Community Food Centre on Hamilton Mountain. There are several neighbourhoods on Hamilton Mountain with high rates of poverty, food insecurity, and growing immigrant populations with little access to supports. Neighbour to Neighbour has a strong track record of serving the community; the Community Food Centre will expand on existing programs by increasing access to healthy food, enhancing skills, building healthier minds and bodies, and empowering the community.
Hamilton Community Food Cente officially launched in the Spring of 2017 on Hamilton Mountain. It is a welcoming and safe community space that will offer food-based programs that bring everyone together to grow, cook, share, and advocate for good food.
