The Cedar Cottage Food Network Society (CCFN) is an independent, non-profit organization working toward more sustainable and just food systems at the neighbourhood level.We create space for Kensington-Cedar Cottage residents to take part in different levels of food systems by providing programming, tools, and opportunities for community connections.
The neighbourhood we serve is Kensington-Cedar Cottage, which runs north to south from Broadway to 41st, and west to east from Fraser to Nanaimo.
Specifically, we have the following objectives:
- Increase access to nutritious, affordable, personally/culturally appropriate food
- Provide education on food skills and systems
- Partner with other organizations to expand the reach of their work and ours
Our programs are generously supported by Vancouver Coastal Health, the City of Vancouver, and Decoda Literacy.
Want to get involved? We are always looking for new partners, volunteers, and friends in food advocacy. E-mail cedarcottagefoodnetwork[at]gmail[dot]com to get in touch.
We acknowledge that our work takes place on the unceded*, ancestral territories of the Coast Salish peoples. This includes the traditional homelands of the Musqueam, Skxwú7mesh-ulh (Squamish), Stó:lo, and Tsleil-Waututh nations.
* Unceded means that this land was never surrendered, relinquished, or handed over in any way.
