Six Primrose, a nod to the Community Food Centre’s civic address, chronicles the dramatic impact that access to healthy food, a social network and empowering programs have had on individual lives and the community as a whole. It was directed by award-winning filmmaker John Hillis of Truefaux Films, who spent three years immersed in the community.

The Dartmouth North Community Food Centre opened its doors in 2015 through a partnership between the Dartmouth Family Centre and Community Food Centres Canada.
