Abstract: Norwood community of Edmonton is just north of the inner city area. Norwood is largely a low-income area with a high number of new immigrant families and senior citizens. Some Norwood women are particularly concerned about the quality and high cost of food. They stressed, as did most of the other low-income groups met by the People's Food Commission, that food costs remain relative to the high cost of housing and utilities. Food and recreation are the "flexible" items of the budget. Food allowances are frequently reduced and recreation drastically eliminated in order to meet housing costs. In effect, the Norwood Community Services Association (NCSA) is trying to create a strong community and to combat the isolation which results from limited incomes and language barriers.
This organization no longer exists.
