The SEED is a community food project of the Guelph Community Health Centre that delivers community programs, operates social enterprises, and advocates to address the causes and effects of food insecurity.
With support from the Centre from 2018–2021, The SEED is testing a social-enterprise-based approach to reducing food insecurity. Social enterprises are businesses with a clear social mission, and this project leverages this model to generate new money to support their food security work. The project seeks to determine whether various food-based social enterprises can help individuals overcome the barriers to food security and be financially self-sustaining.
