Little Mountain Riley Park
Neighbourhood Food Network (NFN)
We are a grassroots network of people, organizations and agencies collaborating on food initiatives. Our work is to ensure access to healthy, culturally appropriate and sustainably produced food for all community members. We work in three areas:
Riley Park Community Garden
A project of the Neighbourhood House, the garden is a community space that builds social cohesion through participation, education and events. We promote food security by supporting neighbourhood organizations and community members with the food grown in our garden. Join us for picnics, meals and potlucks.
Food in Our Community
We contribute to the city-wide food asset map that includes information on community kitchens, low cost and free meals, food distribution, seniors discount days, and food delivery.
• Nourish Our Neighbourhood:
During the month of October. Our annual city-wide fundraiser to support our Community Garden. Businesses do an in-store promotion and shoppers buy local.
Community Outreach & Engagement
Working together to build a resilient, healthy, food secure community.
A project in partnership with Mt Pleasant NH aimed to reduce social isolation for seniors. We are training volunteers to connect with seniors where they share information on resources and activities in the area.
