The Strategic Plan for 2022-2026, Good Food for All,  is the result of deep- level conversations and explorations with NCFC Board and staff where we allowed our imaginations to go to exciting places. It also includes input from many of our program participants and volunteers, who contributed their input through various means. 

This plan builds on the success of our previous Strategic Plan (2015-2020). The NCFC Board and staff teams can feel proud of accomplishing the goals articulated in that document. Within that five-year span, we improved our physical space with the first two phases of our renovation project and increased food access in Nelson and the surrounding area with the creation of the boulevard garden in front of the Centre.

Another major accomplishment from the past Strategic Plan was our evolution from the Nelson Food Cupboard to the Nelson Community Food Centre. We are a proud partner of the Community Food Centres Canada (CFCC) network which links us to 13 like-minded organizations across the country.

Thanks to Community Food Centres Canada and Columbia Basin Trust’s Non-Profit Advisor program for their support in helping make it happen.

To achieve our goals over the next five years, we identified the following five strategic objectives:


  • increase our ability to serve those in our community who we are not already reaching,

  • strengthen our community by building relationships

  • increase organizational resilience and

  • strengthen leadership and provide inspiration on critical issues.
