Equitable access to healthy, local and organic food is crucial to achieving sustainability. Regenesis supports diverse and equitable food access and sustainable food production through our programs and initiatives.
Good food market
Good Food Markets are community markets that sell high quality, culturally appropriate, affordable vegetables and fruits. These markets bring healthy produce to neighbourhoods where it might not otherwise be available, and where farmers’ markets aren’t viable because sales are too low to cover farmers’ costs. This program is collaboration with FoodShare Toronto.
Hosted at: York University, (Keele & Glendon Campus)
Community Food Centre
A Food Centre is a welcoming space where people come together to grow, cook, share and advocate for good food. CFCs provide people with emergency access to high-quality food in a dignified setting that doesn’t compromise their self-worth. People learn cooking and gardening skills, and kids can get their hands dirty in the garden and kitchen in ways that expand their tastebuds and help them make healthier food choices. CFCs offer multifaceted, integrated and responsive programming in a shared space where food builds health, hope, skills and community.
