New CFCA Website

New CFCA Website

The Community Food Connection Association has just launched a new website for their unique organization. The CFCA is a non-profit organization made up of volunteers, agencies and community members concerned about food, nutrition, health and social justice as well as the environment and local agriculture.

The new website focuses on updating the looks and aesthetics of the old site as well updating the resources available on the site. Some of the initiatives of the association now include: Good Food Club, Community Kitchens, Community Gardens, and the Food Charter. The initiatives help to bring concepts of both local food and  food security in a community-type environment to Medicine Hat. New community functions and interactive elements are also scheduled as future updates on the new site.

In related news, the CFCA will be presenting the documentary, Food, Inc. at the Monarch Theatre tomorrow night (Monday, March 8th at 6:30PM). Read about the event here.

Booster Juice is a popular health-conscious stop stop for many people not just in Medicine Hat, but now all over the world. The chain started up in Edmonton in 1999, and ten years later, there are 174 locations in Canada, 23 in the United States, and (seemingly random) 5 in Saudi Arabi, and one in Dubai, India and The Netherlands.

In Medicine Hat, I am rarely let down by the quality of the fruit smoothies. Although, to be fair, I get the same kind whenever I go there, but I have tried others that other people have gotten, and they were good! The staff there are usually friendly. A few times; however, they have seemed less-than-thrilled to be there, but we all have our ups and downs, but overall, they provide consistent quality of deliciousness.

You can couple the Booster Juice with a wrap for the usual price of a meal from any other restaurant. It is definitely a fresh switch from the greasy fast food places.

Booster Juice in Medicine Hat is located in Suite 108, 3215 Dunmore Road Southeast (Across from KFC on Dunmore Road.)
