Equitable access to healthy, local and organic food is crucial to achieving sustainability. Regenesis supports diverse and equitable food access and sustainable food production through our programs and initiatives.
Glendon Markets is a community market that sell high quality, culturally appropriate, affordable vegetables and fruits. This market bring healthy produce to neighbourhoods where it might not otherwise be available, and where farmers’ markets aren’t viable because sales are too low to cover farmers’ costs. This program is collaboration with FoodShare Toronto.
Hosted at: York University (Glendon Campus)
A Community Food Centre (CFC) is a welcoming space where people come together to grow, cook, share and advocate for good food. CFCs provide people with access to high-quality food in a dignified setting that doesn’t compromise their self-worth. There is an opportunity to learn cooking and gardening skills, and get your hands dirty in the garden and kitchen to expand your tastebuds and make healthier food choices. CFCs offer multifaceted, integrated and responsive programming in a shared space, where food builds health, hope, skills and community.
In development at: University of Toronto (St George)
