Food insecurity is a major issue in the Rexdale community. Toronto Public Health and partners, including Rexdale Community Health Centre, are in the process of implementing Toronto’s first Social Supermarket at the Rexdale Community Hub. This initiative would reduce food insecurity by enhancing access to affordable food. This project will allow for potential training opportunities for the Rexdale community. Through assessments conducted in the community, residents have identified not only the necessity for this initiative, but also the skills and training opportunities that can arise from its implementation. In this sense, Rexdale Community Health Centre is looking to strengthen community connections, by having residents take on a leadership role in developing and implementing the Social Supermarket.
This is an outstanding city.
