Anti-Hunger Coalition Timmins aims to provide access to healthy food for all Timmins residents

Anti-Hunger Coalition Timmins (ACT) is a grassroots registered charity aimed at working together for a food-secure community where all residents have the resources to access and prepare healthy food.

ACT's mission is to increase access to local, healthy and affordable food, to facilitate education and skill-building related to community food matters, to foster community relationships that offer creative solutions to local food issues and to address gaps that prevent Timmins from being a food-secure community.

The charity believes in low barriers and equitable access to all people. ACT has a strong community focus driving everything they do. One person, alone, cannot move mountains.
