What your donation can do:
A donation of $1.00/week ($52 annually): Provides water supply for one growing season to one garden plot so that a family can provide for their own nutritional needs while decreasing food costs.

A donation of $5.00/week ($260 annually): Proves a monthly Good Food Bag of fresh fruits & vegetables to a family of four, helping to ensure each family member has their nutritional food needs met.

A donation of $10/week ($520 annually): Provides a weekly supply of diapers, baby food and cereal for one baby for one full year.
The CDCQ is committed to supporting individuals and their families as they work to gain control over their food security needs.
We do this by coordinating self-help food programs, all of which help families to stretch their food dollar, reduce their food costs and meet the food needs of their family members.
"Our programs address poverty by providing accessible and affordable resources to anyone in Hastings & Prince Edward County (HPE).  These resources help them to achieve their full potential physically, economically and developmentally in life, while being treated fairly with dignity and respect."
The Good Baby Box Program aims to ensure all infants in the region have access to healthy, nutritious foods from early in life.
The Good Food Bag program participants can purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at a "much lower than retail" cost. This helps them to stretch their food dollar and have a healthier diet.
The Community Garden Program provides 127 raised garden beds in 10 locations giving participants opportunity to grow their own produce. This not only helps their budget but also has a social component.  

The CDC focuses much of its resources towards community development and social research activities that identify and respond to urgent and emerging social issues.
