Food Systems Projects

Harnessing the power of partnerships by working in collaboration with individuals, councils and other organisations in the local community we develop and implement projects that work toward an equitable food system.

“Food is never just Food… We know that food is a holder of culture, a marker of identity, a source of physical and mental health, a way to nurture the planet, and a means to connect with each other.”  Nick Saul, President and CEO, Community Food Centres Canada

Community Food Centre Expansion Project

The Food Centre Expansion Project, funded by the Lord Mayors Charitable Foundation, aims to expand our Community Food Centre concept across public housing communities in Melbourne. Building on the success of the Fitzroy Community Food Centre, this project aims to replicate elements of the food centre project across the twenty public housing estate community gardens Cultivating Community manages across Melbourne.
