Community Food Centres Canada (CFCC) has launched the Good Food Access Fund to help provide emergency relief during this time of national crisis to our most vulnerable neighbours, including children, single parents, Indigenous people, seniors, and those on disability supports.

Applications for the current round of funding are due by end of day Friday, April 24, 2020.

The funding is not intended to start new/pilot programs or to support core/suspended programs with longer-term objectives; CFCC explains that it has been established to flow funding through community-level organizations as part of a national-level response to improve shorter-term food access for people and households severely impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

Final award amounts will be determined at the discretion of CFCC, up to a maximum of $20,000.
