Transforming the Food System in West Carleton


Transforming the Food System in West Carleton

(Theme 5 – Food, Theme 8 – Health)

Organization: Ottawa Good Food Box (Centretown Community Health Centre) and EnviroCentre’s Sustain West Carleton initiative

Project Start Date: 2016

Objective:

This project is to create infrastructure to improve food systems and food security in West Carleton by: establishing a new community root cellar that will enable area farmers to store their produce longer; creating a West Carleton Food Centre where local farmers can drop off their produce for redistribution; expanding the market share of local food through the Good Food Box (GBF) and local retailers; and expanding/strengthening the GFB program in the region.

West Carleton Food System Project Awarded $125,000 New Leaf Community Challenge Grant by the Community Foundation of Ottawa in December, 2015.
