Improving access to healthy food in Saskatoon’s City Centre
The CCFC is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run organization committed to addressing issues of food access and food security through community collaboration, advocacy, and a pop-up fresh food market.
What We Do
Pop-Up Produce Market
*Currently canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic*
Following the closure of the Shop Easy in 2015 in City Park and the Good Food Junction in Riversdale, close to 25,000 people lost geographic access to a full-service and affordable grocery store. The CCFC is dedicated to bringing awareness and action to issues of local food security and food access.
The CCFC is an entirely volunteer run operation. We rely on volunteers to serve on our Board of Directors, work shifts during our pop-up produce market, and assist in any workshops or advocacy projects we may be offering. Volunteers gain access to a discount on our produce during shifts worked.
The City Centre Food Access Guide
In 2021 we released our first publication, the City Centre Food Access Guide, to build awareness about food insecurity, connect with our community, and explore how issues of food access shape the lived experiences of residents in Saskatoon’s city centre. In 2022, we created a stand-alone resource featuring the City Centre Food Access Guide Map and a list of community organizations where people experiencing food insecurity can access free or affordable food.
