The North Grove's Community Food Centre opened in 2015 in partnership with Community Food Centres Canada. Now one of twelve Community Food Centres across the country, The North Grove CFC was the first in Atlantic Canada. 

Community Meals

We offer delicious and hearty meals throughout the week. During the pandemic we've moved to offering home-cooked take-away meals. These can be picked up every Tuesday between 1:30-2:30 pm and every Friday between 10-11:30 am. 

Community Kitchens

These multi-week programs such as Young Cooks (for children aged 7-12) and Community Kitchens (for adults) are hands-on opportunities for participants to learn cooking skills and be social. Every week, participants learn, make a recipe, and share a meal with the group. During the winter months, we also hold a Men’s Cooking group to get men in the kitchen!

Community Farm

Our on-site farm gives community members and volunteers the chance to learn all about growing vegetables and plants right here in Dartmouth North. We offer farm drop-in opportunities, and growing workshops for adults and children. You can also sign-up for a garden plot, use our tools and support to grow your own vegetables, plants, and flowers.

Community Advocacy Program

Have a question about Income Assistance? Need help with your landlord? Need someone to talk to? Call us at 902-464-8234 ext.0 to book an appointment with one of our trained Peer Advocates or staff member.

Good Food Affordable Market

We will have produce for sale at affordable prices. When in season, we’ll have produce from our farm at our harvest giveaway table. We’ll also have a free buffet style meal and coffee/tea. Following the market, we’ll have our Food Demo, a drop-in cooking demonstration, where you’ll learn how to make a recipe and share a snack.
