If you have fruit trees you won't be picking or a row of veg that you can't get to in time, we have a solution to offer...
Simply fill in the form below and we will contact the nearest and most appropriate community emergency harvest group to you. Someone will be in touch, and in most scenarios volunteers will come out to harvest the food. Often you can keep 1/3 of the fresh harvest, and depending on the organization the food will be shared in creative and delicious ways with community!
SIGN UP NOW + PUT YOUR EXCESS GOOD-FOOD TO WORK!
WE LOVE SHARING KOOTENAY FOOD!
Our successful 2017 pilot project saw thousands of pounds of excess fruit diverted and provided to community! This year Kootenay Food is expanding that program and our offerings.
Local farmers and gardeners are among our strongest collaborators! You sign up and we bring in a team to pick your excess. We process fresh bounty into shelf-stable preserves using only certified organic additions (like vinegar, spices, natural pectin and cane sugar). Our Food Safe Certified team leaders and volunteers create retail-ready products using modern practices in a commercial kitchen. You get a fair share of the finished product, and we sell the rest to fund future Good Food initiatives and continue sharing with our community! HOW SWEET IS THAT?
