Food & Food ServicesGovernment & Community Services
The Community Development Council of Quinte (CDCQuinte) is a non-profit, charitable organization. Since 1989, we have been promoting the planning and provision of health and social services to ensure residents of the Quinte community are provided with the necessities of life and an opportunity to improve one’s quality of life.
We promote and participate in the development of a grass-roots community development and social planning process that involves all sectors using a self-help, consensus building approach to identifying and resolving important community issues.
We operate five food security programs. All of our programs are open for anyone to participate...we do no needs assessment. Participants are paying a nominal fee, therefore still providing for their family but stretching their dollar. Our goal is to make healthy and nutritious food affordable and accessible. We are self-sustainability model, not a charitable model. Our Community Kitchens and Community Garden programs are teaching people the basics of cooking and growing their own food....which also leads to a greater sense of self-sustainability.
