In June 2018, The Depot was recognized as the first Community Food Centre in Quebec.
A Community Food Centre (CFC) is a welcoming space where people come together to grow, cook, share and advocate for Good Food for All. CFCs provide people with emergency access to high-quality food in a dignified setting that doesn’t compromise their self-worth. People build their cooking and gardening skills while sharing their knowledge, and kids expand their tastes and get their hands dirty in kitchens and gardens in ways that help them make healthier food choices. Community members find their voices on the issues that matter to them, and people find friends and support. CFCs offer multifaceted, integrated and responsive programming in a shared space where food builds health, hope, skills and community.
