2018 Impact Summary

Hamilton Community Food Centre offers food access, food skills and education and engagement programs in a dignified and welcoming space that brings the community together to grow, cook, share, and advocate for good food.

This Impact Summary provides a snapshot of our 2018 program data, as well as the results from our 2018 Annual Program Survey. The survey was conducted as an in-person interview with 75 adult participants across a variety of our programs, and helps us to better understand outcomes in the areas of healthy food access; knowledge, skills and behaviours; social inclusion and civic engagement.

"I feel like I have my second home here. I’ve met a lot of people from other countries and we learn about healthy food from these countries–which is very important and special. I feel very happy here."
