Gananoque and Area Food Access Network

Categories: Sites
Published on: September 20, 2015

Our ambition is to support our local community to provide access and information and help to develop skills and confidence to choose, prepare, store, grow, eat and share a variety of affordable, sufficient, safe, nutritious, enjoyable and – where possible – locally grown and produced foods.

Since our ‘Conversation about Food’ event in March 2015, this group has supported the community garden on Arthur Street. We have held one gardening workshop called, “Get Gananoque Growing” in partnership with the Gananoque Horticultural Society. Over the next several months, we intend on developing partnerships with Queen’s University, supporting the Good Food Box and other food access initiatives and working with young people and families to create opportunities that will help build food skills.

Members include: Salvation Army, Gananoque Food Bank, TR Leger (UCDSB), Town of Gananoque, R.O.L.L. Aid Centre, KEYS Job Centre, Boys and Girls Club of Kingston (Gananoque), Gananoque Intermediate and Secondary School, and Leeds Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit.
