WHO WE ARE
GROW Community Food Literacy Centre is a registered charity in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Our goals are to assist and empower those with barriers to accessing and benefiting from good healthy food.
We do this by offering a fresh produce market with pantry, community kitchen with opportunities to cook, and share good food while building community and breaking down social isolation.
In addition to living on fixed incomes, seniors face additional challenges when it comes to accessing healthy and fresh food. Poor mobility and lack of transportation are some of the biggest reasons why many seniors fall into food insecurity. Research has shown that seniors experiencing food insecurity compromise on food quality or preference and are unable to acquire or prepare enough food.
