Community Food Connections Association is a non-profit organization comprised of volunteers, agencies and citizens concerned about food, nutrition, health, social justice, the environment and local agriculture. We share a common goal of improving the quality of life for EVERYONE and believe healthy food is a right for all.
Our main initiatives include the following community groups available in Medicine Hat and Redcliff:
The Good Food Club:
Offers anyone in the communities of Medicine Hat & Redcliff the opportunity to purchase fresh, local when possible, fruits and vegetables at wholesale prices. This program is currently running with limited depots due to COVID-19, please call for more information. Application form is linked below.
A group of people who get together on a regular basis to cook healthy, low-cost meals. Groups may focus on basic food skills, food types, or cooking techniques. Kitchens can be based around the interests and needs of the group, such as food preferences or dietary restrictions. Community Kitchen workshops are also held as a great way to learn skills that may seem intimidating to try on your own. You will be able to take home what you have prepared at the workshop. Workshops are typically held on a Saturday morning, and the average cost is $10/person. Please check the website for upcoming workshops.
Provides a shared space for residents to grow their own vegetables, thereby enhancing both physical and emotional well-being. During the growing season, they also offer opportunities for gardeners to participate in workshops or tours to learn about existing and new gardening practices. Upcoming events & workshops will be posted on their website. Application form is linked below.
