About COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL OF QUINTE
The CDCQ is committed to supporting individuals and their families as they work to gain control over their food security needs.
We do this by coordinating self-help food programs, all of which help families to stretch their food dollar, reduce their food costs and meet the food needs of their family members. The Good Baby Box Program is the most popular of all the self-help programs we support as we aim to ensure all infants in the region have access to healthy, nutritious foods from early in life.
The Good Food Box program is another self-help food program. Participants can purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at a "much lower than retail" cost. This helps them to stretch their food dollar and have a healthier diet.
The CDC focuses much of its resources towards community development and social research activities that identify and respond to urgent and emerging social issues.
