Canberra Northside Community Hub

Connect, converse and collaborate with your community to find ways to eat sustainably and within your local food system

What is a Community Hub?

Community Hubs are online spaces where communities can connect, converse and collaborate to enable access sustainable food and address food insecurity issues.

They are managed by Community Fed – an organisation that aims to eliminate barriers to eating sustainably by harnessing the power of community and local food systems.

Canberra Northside is one of the first of many Community Hubs! There is also a Community Hub for Canberra Southside here.

Reach out via the contact form below to share suggestions for improving Community Hubs.
