The Local Community Food Centre in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, empowers those with barriers to accessing and benefiting from good healthy food by offering opportunities to access, grow, cook, share and advocate for good food for everyone. Our programs include three weekly community meals; daily cooking classes to teach people food skills to cook healthy, delicious meals even on a restricted budget; community garden and greenhouse programs; a Community Access Market where people can purchase local, fresh, healthy food at affordable wholesale prices; and a Social Justice Club and Peer Advocacy Office where community members experiencing poverty can work together to target the root causes of food insecurity.  The Local is a partner site for the national organization Community Food Centres Canada.
