Dr. Gillis is a member of the Seed Community Food Hub committee.
The Seed Community Food Hub works with community partners to create welcoming spaces for people to come together to access, grow, cook, and share good food. Along with its community partners, The Seed is helping to increase access to healthy food in a dignified way and using food as a tool to build hope, health, skills and community.
The Seed has been awarded a $267,300 Ontario Trillium Foundation grant to help achieve this goal.
Seed members Kate Vsetula, and Lisa Needham have also been awarded the Emilie Hayes Community Partnership Award for their continued work in the community (with both Farm To Fork and the Seed Food Hub).
