reFRESH Cowichan Marketplace

Welcome! Located in downtown Duncan, the reFRESH Cowichan storefront is a warm and inviting space where the whole community can benefit from healthy, affordable foods like fresh produce, frozen meals, dry goods, herbs & spices, and a line of value-added products at accessible prices. reFRESH stands for: Food Recovery Social-enterprise Hub. Expanding on the work of CGC's food recovery project, the newly re-branded store offers a dignified and inclusive shopping experience made possible by the generosity of food donors and partners.

The storefront at 360 Duncan St. is the brick-and-mortar location for reFRESH Cowichan online, where you can place orders and then pick up your pre-purchased frozen meals in person.
