Anti-Hunger Coalition Timmins got its start from a small group of people hungry for change! The vision of the group was to provide a coordinated response to the problem of food insecurity in Timmins.
Incorporated in 2007, ACT became a registered charity in 2009 with the goal of developing creative coordinated responses to barriers such as low income, inaccessibility to land, transportation, and gaps in knowledge or experience that make it difficult for people to meet their basic need for healthy food.
Today ACT is a Good Food Organization recognized by Community Food Centres Canada. Our mission to increase education and access to local, healthy and affordable food is reflected in our 3 core programs: Community Gardens, Community Cooking and community distribution of fruit and vegetables (The Good Food Box Program).
