The Canada Prenatal Nutrition Program (CPNP) is a community based program that supports women through their pregnancy and the first year of their baby’s life. The program provides resources and support in areas such as nutrition, health issues, breastfeeding and infant development.
The Healthy Families Program is an accredited B.C. Family Resource Program which supports pregnant women, parents and caregivers to provide children (birth up to 6th year) with a strong foundation in life.
We offer a wide range of cooking programs and food skill classes for community members of all ages, experiences and backgrounds.
Most programs are free, and when they are not we offer bursaries, so everyone can enjoy them.
