WHAT IS THE SEED?
The SEED is a not-for-profit food project at the Guelph Community Health Centre that was created in 2015 by a coalition of community organizations and individuals.
The problem we are tackling - and the solutions we believe in
Over 20,000 people in Guelph and Wellington County can’t afford healthy food.
Our goal is to make Guelph- Wellington the first community in Canada to eradicate food insecurity by:
Delivering food programs that build food literacy and increase access to good food.
Operating social enterprises that increase good food access, train and employ youth, and generate revenue that is re-invested in achieving our Mission/Vision.
Working with community members and partner organizations to make good things happen.
Advocating for systems-change and effective food policies.
The SEED delivers community programs and operates social enterprises that address the causes and effects of food insecurity.
We are working towards a community with no barriers to healthy food.
• Food Justice: Access to healthy food is a basic human rights.
• Community food programs and social enterprise: Vehicles for empowering people to be agents of change.
• Diversity: Solutions come from diverse voices, experiences and input.
• Grassroots community leadership. There are food leaders in every corner of Guelph and Wellington.
