Anti-Poverty Initiative

The Anti-Poverty project is an initiative from the Coalition of Community Health and Resource Centres of Ottawa, based at the RCR Rideau-Rockcliffe. It aims to address poverty at the local level and improve access to affordable and nutritious food for low income families. In order to achieve this goal, the Good Food Markets and the MarketMobile initiatives were established.
