What is the CCFN?

photo (26)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. 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

We are one of several Neighbourhood Food Networks that exist in Vancouver. Together, we are helping the City of Vancouver reach its goal of becoming the Greenest City in the world by 2020.

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.
