WE LOVE COLLABORATIONS!
At Kootenay Food, we love collaborating with like-minded initiatives in our region, to enhance our programming and efforts to build a more resilient region. We believe there is a high value in collaborative models that strive to reduce the duplication of efforts, and emphasize a shared path to a common goal.
Throughout the years we have collaborated with a number of organizations and projects. We have successfully partnered with local area schools; fellow non-profit organizations; food focused projects + festivals; community groups; local businesses and local farmers and food producers.
We have developed a clearly outlined Collaboration Agreement for our organization to use, to facilitate smooth and successful partnerships.
During our pilot events this year we have learned that this agreement is
an excellent tool that enables all partners to understand roles, responsibilities and desired outcomes of each project.
