At LUSH Valley we work to increase food security in the Comox Valley.
A food secure community is one in which all people have consistent access to healthy, culturally appropriate and where possible local food. We see healthy local food as central to community well-being.
Eat West Coast is everything food on the west coast of Vancouver Island. We want a region where food is celebrated, abundant, and integral to the culture, health, economy, and community well-being for all residents.
Local organization funded through Island Healths Community Food Action Initiative. We work closely with the regional district to improve local food security in as many ways as possible. We are driven by a strong working group, and many community voluteers.
Nanaimo Foodshare is where 'local food matters"! We are a local charitable non-profit that promotes food security in the region.
