Food4Good is our approach to food security in West Edmonton. We work with community members and other community-focused organizations to create access to and education around good food.

What we do:

  1. Operate low-cost fruit & veggie markets to crease access to fresh food.
  2. Operate low-cost educational programs on how to cook: collective kitchens and meal prep courses for elders, adults and seniors.
  3. Operate Emergency Good Food Hampers delivery program with the focus of getting healthy fresh food to community members who may need extra help with food security during COVID19.
  4. Partner with Edmonton Food Bank as a depot for community emergencies such as COVID19.

 

 

The prevalence of diet-related chronic conditions and diseases are higher in the Edmonton – Jasper Place Zone than the provincial average.
