Look what we're up to...

SaltWater Community Association Inc.  

received $20,000 for emergency food aid in the wake of COVID-19


Good Food Access Fund Grant provided food hampers to the most vulnerable in Bonavista Penninsula 


Bonavista, NL — SaltWater Community Association Inc. in partnership with The Town of Elliston is pleased to announce it has received a grant of $20,000 from Community Food Centres Canada’s Good Food Access Fund. The grant will enable SaltWater Community Association Inc.  to do a Hamper Program for vulnerable individuals living in Bonavista Penninsula. Funding is provided in part by the Government of Canada’s Local Food Infrastructure Fund, as part of the Food Policy for Canada. The Fund aims to strengthen food systems and facilitate access to safe and nutritious food for at-risk populations.


“With escalating food prices, these food hampers will  bring relief to the most vulnerable in our communities from Bonavista, NL to Random IIsland, NL and all the outport communities in between.”


“Food insecurity was already an urgent problem before the COVID-19 crisis, with one in 8 Canadians struggling to put food on the table. In a time of national crisis, it is in our nature as Canadians to do what we can for our most vulnerable neighbours. We are grateful to the Government of Canada for their quick response, as well as the many corporate partners and generous donors who have stepped forward” says Nick Saul, CEO of Community Food Centres Canada. 


“The Good Food Access Fund aims to make sure that as many people as possible will be able to get the food that they need. And while we must deal with the current circumstances, CFCC remains committed to advancing policy change that addresses the underlying causes of food insecurity and poverty in Canada. We can’t forget that structural inequity is at the core of so many of the challenges that Canadians face, a fact which painfully confronts us when an emergency like this occurs.”
