Ottawa Community Food Partnership

The Ottawa Community Food Partnership  emerged in 2016 out of work that was being undertaken by several emergency food providers, working with community health and resource centres, to shift from a traditional charitable grounded in community engagement and food security, and based on three pillars:

  1. Healthy Food Access
  2. Healthy Food Skills
  3. Education and Engagement

The Partnership provides a forum for coordination, information sharing, and advocacy among these groups.

The  Ottawa Community Food Partnership is generously funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.  Through this funding, members are involved activities aimed at strengthening the three pillars above; such as:

  • Implementing Community Fridges in other locations throughout the Partnership
  • Buying seeds for ethnic foods to be grown in gardens
  • Funding for more culturally appropriate food
  • Funding for gleaning activities
