Food Skills

Fun and Informative

We offer Food Skills programs throughout the year, for kids and adults,
where participants share, learn, cook and eat together.

Watch our gardens grow.

Plant, weed, harvest and connect. All at the Food Centre Garden.
Harvest Rescue

So much more than just picking fruit

The Harvest Rescue program gleans fresh produce, with the help of trained volunteers,
from backyard gardens in the Nelson area and vegetables from nearby farms.
Good Food Bank

Our Good Food Bank supported 2,000 individuals in 2019.

At the Nelson Community Food Centre, we believe that access to healthy food
is a human right.

Welcome To the
Nelson Community Food Centre

At the Nelson Community Food Centre, we strive to create a welcoming environment where people can access healthy food, join a cooking or gardening program, and be a part of a community centred on nutritious food and fun social activities.
