The Nelson Community Food Centre is a proud partner of Community Food Centres Canada (CFCC), a national non-profit that builds health, belonging, and social justice in communities across Canada through the power of food. With CFCC, and other Community Food Centres across Canada, we are building a country where good food is recognized as a right, and central to health, and where everyone has the means, knowledge, and voice to access good food with dignity. Visit for more information.

CFCC is a major financial supporter of the Nelson Community Food Centre, and all the other Community Food Centres across the country. CFCC also shares best practices, tool and tips, that make running our four programs smoother. It is an honour for us, at the Nelson CFC, to be part of the Community Food Centre movement.
