Food Recovery Project (reFRESH Cowichan)

In late 2018, Cowichan Green Community received a second round of funding from the Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction to further develop the very successful Cowichan Food Recovery Project.

This project employs four full-time staff. Together, we are expanding the food recovery system to reclaim unwanted food, and redirect it into a variety of other more sustainable streams including re-distribution, processing, animal feed, and compost.

As a part of our ongoing work to become a self-sustaining social enterprise, we are creating a series of value-added products, which are now for sale in the reFRESH Cowichan Marketplace

Milestones to date:

reFRESH Cowichan is: Nathan Harben, Kelsey Odber, Tony Monk and Sharon Snow
