Kootenay Food, with the collaboration and support of WEGCSS & CBT will kick off weekly runs to Neson to collect pre-ordered Food, Pharmacy and Farm Supplies for Slocan Valley Residents in need. As demand grows we will increase days of the week and stops to include Valley Retailers and Farms.  Castlegar pickups are a potential if needed.

If you want to participate it’s pretty simple;

  1. You call and order what you need from retailers listed on our site, you pay them directly over the phone, and let them know that KOOTENAY FOOD will be picking up your order on your behalf on the appropriate day (Presently Nelson pickups are FRIDAYS).
  2. Register your delivery at This service is free to those in need but any community member that would benefit from limiting their own exposure can also access delivery as a low cost paid service.

If there is a stop you need that isn’t listed on our site, just drop us a line. If you are a local food producer, farmer or food retailer and you would like to be added as a stop on our delivery schedule you can email

If you have limitations to paying over the phone you can reach out to WEGCSS and they will support you in finding a payment solution. Presently we do not shop or make payments, we simply pick up and deliver.

Keeping our community safe is very important to us, we are following food handlers protocol, and our drivers are healthy, equipped with sanitization and safety gear and your delivery will be left on your doorstep.
