Good Food Organizations are a national network of food security non-profits who share a commitment to creating a healthy and fair food system. A project of Community Food Centres Canada, the Good Food Organizations (GFO) program aims to increase the capacity of community food security organizations. The initiative offers opportunities to access grants, collaborate on advocacy campaigns, attend training and an annual conference, and network with likeminded organizations. CFCC also runs a Food Bank Transformation Short Course as a way to directly support food banks interested in centring health and social justice in their work.
In this webinar Emily Van Halem, CFCC’s Knowledge Exchange Senior Manager, explains CFCC’s work building Community Food Centres, and how they support the wider food security sector via the Good Food Organizations program and their food bank transformation training. We also hear from Pedvac, a New Brunswick GFO, about how the program has supported them so far.
