Community Chefs
The three chefs from Stratford, Ont.'s The Local, Toronto's The Stop and Perth, Ont.'s The Table community centres tried to stick to "affordable, healthy and simple recipes that feature seasonal ingredients," says Christina Palassio, Community Food Centres Canada's communications manager.

The mission of the community food centres: bring people together to grow, cook, share and advocate for good food.

"These low-cost and healthy recipes are prepared in community kitchens that increase access to healthy food, food skills and nutritional information in low-income communities," says Palassio.
