CICS's community food program uses the power of food to facilitate social connection and strengthen community. As a year-round field-to-table program, it includes gardening, outdoor and environmental stewardship activities in the Spring/Summer and healthy eating, nutrition education, community meals and cultural activities in the Fall/Winter, providing an intercultural space to bring people together and make connections through food. CICS has been growing our community garden since 2011 and operating our commercial-grade community kitchen since 2013.

The ENRICH project is a three-year (2019-2021) community gardening and healthy eating project, supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation. ENRICH will build on achievements, lessons learned and good practices in urban food security and agriculture, enabling increasing numbers of newcomers to learn, share their skills and knowledge, connect with others and contribute to the vibrancy and well-being of their communities.

All are welcome! Come join us to celebrate the power and goodness of food!
