The SEED, a project of the Guelph Community Health Centre (GCHC), is a food movement that brings together diverse partners and community members to help build a new kind of food system in Guelph-Wellington. Since The SEED was established in 2015, they have been growing their program and social enterprise offerings to fill local gaps, driven by the long-term goals of addressing poverty and improving health and well-being.

As a project of the GCHC, The SEED maintains a strong connection to the big picture of improved community health. While programming at The SEED is focused on food system interventions that address the challenge of food security – their multi-pronged approach considers a broad spectrum of social determinants of health and builds community capacity to address the root causes of poverty.
