    GROW Community Food Literacy Centre

    GROW Community Food Literacy Centre is a registered food charity in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Our goals are to assist and empower those with barriers to accessing and benefiting from good healthy food. GROW is a community-focused model aimed at addressing some of the long-term food challenges that low-income residents and persons with disabilities face in our community.

    The GROW Market is open every Saturday from 10:30am – 1:30pm.

    This market makes fresh food more accessible to those living on low incomes. When people shop for fruits and vegetables at the affordable produce market, their money goes a lot further and residents can head home with loads of fresh ingredients to prepare healthy meals. The market offers fresh foods including vegetables, fruits, fish and unprocessed meats at wholesale prices, along with canned and other non-perishable food.

    GROW Market is for individuals and families meeting the low-income cut off. Please bring proof of income to obtain a membership card to the market. You may also pre-register by phone or email. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the centre.

    United Way Niagara

    Physical distancing is challenging all of us in new ways, but for people experiencing homelessness, it’s impossible. Staying home certainly isn’t convenient, but for people experiencing domestic violence, it’s life threatening. And for those experiencing food insecurity or mental illness, loss of contact with services and people is more than a frustration, it’s a crisis.

    United Way works to tackle some of the biggest social issues in Niagara. Issues like food security and poverty are easy to ignore when you can’t see them. Unfortunately it took a pandemic to bring these critical social issues to the forefront. United Way invests in solutions to poverty, food security, mental health and well-being, homelessness, domestic violence and social isolation. These are the issues we aim to make #UNIGNORABLE.

    We work locally to raise funds and invest in programming that improves lives, providing solutions to real, local social problems. Learn more at
    www.unitedwayniagara.org.

    Due to COVID-19, our office remains closed to the public and our staff is working remotely. Please call or email.
