Our Mission

We are committed to increasing access to safe, nutrient-dense, affordable, sustainable, and culturally specific foods that are within walking distance for all in our community. We do this through strengthening and amplifying existing initiatives; identifying needs, gaps, and opportunities; and through building partnerships and community connections. Our focus is on non-emergency food.

Who we target?

Our members are concerned citizens and representatives from local organizations and businesses who share a passion for creating opportunities and breaking down barriers regarding food access. Some of us have lived experience of food insecurity. We are reaching out to diverse communities in our region, in efforts to have many voices and perspectives at our “table”.

Where are we now?

Since we began meeting in April 2020, we’ve grown our membership, made community connections, and produced the Food Access Community Resource Hub. This autumn 2020, we are looking towards the future and considering what directions and projects to take on next. We welcome anyone who is interested in food access to join us or contact us for more information.
