St . James Town Community Co-operative

For the community; by the community


About the Co-op

The community of St. James Town is one of the most highly educated and culturally diverse urban pockets in the world, with an estimated 140 languages spoken and 0.46 graduate degrees per capita. Home to majority newcomers, this densely populated high-rise, low-income neighbourhood has, unfortunately, remained overlooked and underserved for several decades. The St. James Town Community Co-operative was created by residents of the neighbourhood to address the growing need for food security, capacity building, and emergency preparation. Learn more about our projects below:

OASIS Food Hub

Our keystone project: a full cycle Food Hub for growing, distributing, and composting food.

Good Food Buying Club

An affordable and collaborative way to buy high-quality dried goods and local farmer produce.

Emergency Food Program

An emergency food relief fund which emerged in response to the impacts of COVID-19 on St. James Town residents.

Black & Indigenous Food Rights

The Co-op's Black and Indigenous-led working group is developing practices for cultural responsiveness in the neighbourhood.
