Addressing CHRONIC Food Insecurity

We want to help people to become everything they were created to be, AND we want to help our community to become everything it can be!

COMING SOON:  We're working on establishing Barrie's first downtown Food Co-op, to help to supply affordable food to those who need it most, while providing people with dignity, value, and purpose by including them in the process of developing their community.  

Feed - Assist - Develop.  Become everything that you were created to be.

We help people who are experiencing food insecurity.

The opposite of poverty is connection.
