Urban Pantry's mission is to strengthen the community of Barrie by fostering a connection between its citizens and their environment, through supporting the increase and diversification of a sustainable local food system.
This is an ongoing position
Urban Pantry is a collaboration of like-minded individuals and groups working together on urban agriculture and community cooking initiatives. Currently, the Urban Pantry is a program of the CMHA (Canadian Mental Health Association), funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation through a Grow grant. The grant outcome, under the Prosperous People stream, is: people who are economically vulnerable have access to services that enhance their financial stability. Over the next 3 years, Urban Pantry will deliver food-growing and food skills programming in Barrie. By 2021, there will be 7 new community gardens in Barrie, including a youth & wellness garden at the CMHA. There will also be food skills workshops, food handler certification training, and an expansion of the Barrie Good Food Box program. Contact us if you would like to get involved!
