Good food is just the beginning
Join a movement that's building health, belonging, and social justice through the power of food
The Dartmouth North Community Food Centre is a vibrant space where people come to grow, cook, share, and advocate for good food for all.
The Community Food Centre opened in its doors in 2015 in a former Sobeys store on Primrose Street, in a neighbourhood where gathering spaces and services were few and far between, whose residents face significant challenges such as poverty, social isolation, and lack of access to healthy food.
"This place turned my life around"
"I'm so grateful that someone's thoughts and actions brought this place to our community."
Since then, community members, volunteers, and staff have created a welcoming, dignified space where friends come to meet to enjoy a delicious meal together, kids learn how to choose and prepare good food, neighbours gather in the kitchen and garden to share food cultures and learn new skills, and people look out and care for each other. For many, it has become a second home.
The Dartmouth North Community Food Centre was created through a partnership between the Dartmouth Family Centre, an organization with deep roots in the neighbourhood, and Community Food Centres Canada, a national nonprofit that's building Community Food Centres across the country. These centres strive to improve the health and well-being of people who are struggling with poverty and food insecurity by offering programs that increase access to healthy food, build food skills, improve physical and mental health, reduce social isolation, and mobilize people to advocate for their communities.
