We are humbled and proud to do this work and it wouldn’t be possible without the community collaborators we work alongside. If you’re looking for ways to get involved, see below for some ways to support 10C and its community partners.
Help build a connected community where everyone has enough good food
As we’ve learned this year while working with The SEED, it takes a community to feed a community. With your help, we can strengthen The SEED’s support to some of Guelph-Wellington’s most food insecure by providing increased access to fresh, affordable, and nutritious food.
Double your impact – this means your $50.00 donation becomes $100.00 and will help The SEED feed more people – even faster.
Make a donation through Harvest Impact to The SEED and you will receive a tax receipt from the Guelph Community Health Centre.
Come together as a community to support Indigenous food sovereignty
In collaboration and reciprocity, the Indigenous Food Sovereignty and Indigenous Food Security Collective/Circle and the team at Harvest Impact by 10C, have fostered relationships and continue to learn to walk alongside each other. And now we would like to share this journey with the whole community.
For many reading this, who are used to clicking a button and donating, this will be new to you, and we welcome you along. You may also wish to read this recent article. This is a “new” approach to gifting.
Food insecurity is a growing concern, and over many centuries Indigenous people have lost access to traditional food and lands for growing food. In Guelph and Wellington (and beyond) there are many Indigenous families experiencing the highest levels of food insecurity, with high rates of diabetes among households. At the same time, the community has Indigenous Knowledge Keepers and Elders who hold deep, centuries-old knowledge about ancestral foods and medicines that nourish. Together, more food and its healing properties are gathered with Indigenous families.

Help to revitalize the Guelph Farmers’ Market
10C is leading the revitalization of the Guelph Farmers’ Market, in order to breathe new life into one of the most underused spaces in the city. From intimate coffee dates and small classes to weddings and trade shows, the updated building will offer a uniquely historic stage for gatherings of all shapes and sizes.
The goal is to enhance the market as a key local and regional gathering place and tourism destination. This will be achieved through building improvements, adding a commercial kitchen and promotional infrastructure to increase local food activities and special events.
