one for me, one for you
We are so excited to announce that after over a year and a half of hard work, the Food Program has really come together, and not only do we have a solid group of people in our kitchen, helping cook, prepare, package and clean, we also have an amazing amount of support from you Niagara.
When you contribute in some way to our organization, we can feed more people healthy food.
How? We work with many forms of currency. Some have time, some have money, some have skill, some have heart… some just simply need help. But we all need to eat.
All we’ve needed is a better system. And that system is local food. This food program was designed to allow space for everyone to be able to contribute, how and when they can. And with us, once you’ve fed your own family food grown and prepared locally, you’ve just inevitably now helped feed those who can’t afford to eat this way. All through distribution channels that already exist, ie charities/social enterprises, food banks, shelters and group homes.
Healthy food. To be clear. We aren’t just “making sure the needy eat”. We are feeding everyone. And we don’t want to feed others, who don’t have enough to eat, whatever it is we have left over in our cupboards. Around here everybody eats the same food.
This is about creating how we can do this best, without sacrificing the environment. And honestly? The people who need this food?, They actually need it to be healthy. There are no excuses.
Food is medicine.
Make no mistake. Local is the answer.
Distribution Channel #1
We grow and purchase as much local food as we can. The better we get the more local we will be, and we are determined.
It’s time for a change.
