Kyle Byron believes good food should taste delicious and make us feel good too. Emma Shulist believes good food means the opportunity for someone to make a conscious choice.

Community Food Centres Canada is pleased to announce funding opportunities to launch FoodFit programming in your community.
FoodFit is a healthy eating and exercise program that was developed by Community Food Centres Canada and has been successfully implemented by several organizational partners across Canada. FoodFit is targeted at people living on a low income and brings groups together to learn new food skills, set achievable goals and to inspire them to make measurable changes in overall health and fitness.
At CFCC, we've long been inspired by the "Rx" approach – healthcare providers writing prescriptions for fresh fruits and vegetables that low-income families can redeem as vouchers at local farmer's markets.
Right now, government regulators and civil society organizations are battling with the processed food industry to create a better food environment for Canadians.There is an urgency to address how corporate interests are impacting public health, however how to achieve this is highly contested. Where should health advocates be pushing the hardest? And how do we, as consumers, navigate “choice” in an environment that’s stacked against us?
