About Us

Our Mission

Carrefour Solidaire Community Food Centre (CFC) welcomes everyone and acts at the heart of the food system to support people experiencing food insecurity. It embodies the Right to Food in its actions through three complementary programming axes.

Our Three Axes

  • Improving access to fresh and local food while respecting dignity, autonomy, and choice;
  • Developing the skills of community members both in the kitchen and in the garden; and
  • Mobilizing our community around social, environmental and political food issues. 

Carrefour Solidaire CFC’s Legal Entities

Formerly known as Carrefour alimentaire Centre-Sud, Carrefour Solidaire CFC brings together two complementary and pre-existing legal entities:

  • Marché Frontenac, a non-profit organization that operates two social economy projects, Marché Solidaire Frontenac and 3 Paniers Alternative Grocery Store; and
  • Rencontres-Cuisines, a charitable organization that operates all the other services and activities offered by Carrefour Solidaire CFC.

Our Partnership with Community Food Centres Canada

Carrefour Solidaire Community Food Centre is a partner site of Community Food Centres Canada, a national nonprofit working to address the root causes of food insecurity. Carrefour Solidaire CFC is part of a movement of organizations across the country building health, belonging, and social justice through food.

What is a Community Food Centre?

A Community Food Centre is a welcoming space where people come together to grow, cook, share, and advocate. Community members access food that’s fresh, nourishing, affordable, and culturally appropriate. 

Food is what draws someone in, but at a Centre they find so much more. Community members learn cooking and gardening skills, and kids get their hands dirty in ways that expand their taste buds and food know-how. At a Community Food Centre, people take collective action on the issues that affect their lives and develop nourishing, lasting connections.
