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.
Revenue generated via the reFRESH Cowichan storefront covers ongoing program costs like transportation, training/job creation, and facility rentals. Operating as a social enterprise, reFRESH Cowichan offers products and services to generate revenue that allows the food recovery program to continue fulfilling our mandate of increasing community access to healthy, low cost foods while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by keeping good food out of the landfill.
