The North End Food Security Network is a non-profit organization that aims to improve the health of North End residents by making our local food system more sustainable, accessible and equitable. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Winnipeg Food Share Co-Op provides residents with their own, "Good Food Box," in order to get an affordable mix of fruits and vegetables in their neighbourhood.
Boxes are delivered to community depots every two weeks on Wednesdays. Orders must be received 1 week prior.
WFC is possible thanks to support from Food Matters Manitoba.
Food Matters Manitoba (Our Food our Health our culture) - http://www.foodmattersmanitoba.ca/projects/our-food-our-health-our-culture/
Our Food Our Health Our Culture (OFHC) works in the North End of Winnipeg in partnership with the North End Food Security Network. We provide cooking classes to North End youth, strengthen the healthy menu planning skills of partner agency staff through the Community Tables project, and facilitate access to healthy and traditional foods through retailers and school snack programs. But the project goes a step further: it empowers individuals and communities to grow, share and prepare their own food and provides them with skills they can use for life. Contact Lissie Rappaport at: email@example.com for more information.
