Yorkshire Valley Farms is proud to announce that we are one of three national lead Share The Health sponsors alongside Neal Brothers and Bernardin, a lively new event series run by CFCC that will raise funds to bring local healthy, and sustainable food into low-income communities via partnerships between farms and Community Food Centres.
Community Food Centres Canada (CFCC) provides ideas, resources and a proven approach to partner organizations across Canada so they can establish responsive, financially stable Community Food Centres. These centres work to bring people together to grow, cook, share, and advocate for good food. With their partners and communities, they are working toward a healthy and fair food system.
It’s a win for local farmers,
A win for the environment,
And a win for low-income communities.
Because good food matters to us all.
In 2013, proceeds from five lively community events will be used to buy produce from environmentally sustainable, small local farms for use in meals, hampers and kitchens at three Community Food Centres across Ontario: The Stop CFC in Toronto,The Table CFC in Perth and The Local CFC in Stratford.
With the first community event being a huge success, having sold out tickets to the concert, we are excited to see the events in the coming weeks. The next event is on August 24th 2013 in Perth, Ontario, where Share the Health will be showcasing Lanark County’s farmers and chefs. So come by and have a night with good food for good food, because good food matters to us all!
