2018 Grant Recipient
In Fall 2018, the Advisory Committee gathered to distribute $9,680 in funding to the Parkdale Food Centre. Thank you to all who applied and congratulations to our recipient!
Parkdale Food Centre has received $9,680 to fund an expansion of the Growing Futures – Solutionary Workshop Program to a broader youth audience. The outcomes of this program include: children being equipped with the skills and knowledge they need to thrive; participants being more engaged in their communities through direct actions such as park clean ups, research projects on local environmental issues; parents changing their shopping/buying/spending habits as a result of children’s involvement with Growing Futures; youth accessing new opportunities through expanded social networks.
“The Parkdale Food Centre is so excited to be collaborating with EnviroCentre on this project. We both value creating concrete change in our community by pulling all of our neighbours together. We believe that we can make this happen, starting with our youngest neighbours, and teaching them to become Solutionaries. A Solutionary is a person who see solutions where others see problems, and we need a generation of Solutionaries.”
