What Do We Do?

We work directly with communities to build resources for fostering social cohesion.

Our mission started with revitalizing access to fresh, healthy food. But inadequate food access is a symptom of greater social insecurity, so we didn’t want to stop there.

We listened & with community-led initiatives created new platforms for engagement. From skills workshops to kids’ play areas to music and dance in the park, we support an increasingly vibrant neighbourhood atmosphere.

How Do We Support?

Our team creates partnerships with public agencies, advocacy groups, and small businesses while enabling resident leadership, job creation and volunteerism.

We directly collaborate with community partners, residents, supporters and a few kind funders – but no matter what – we bring the neighbourhood voices to the forefront.

That’s not all though, click below to learn more about the wide-range of programs and services offered by Building Roots.
