Welcome to the non-profit GULF ISLANDS FOOD CO-OP of B.C., Canada!

We focus on the unique FOOD PRODUCERS of the Southern Gulf Islands of Pender, Mayne, Saturna and Galiano – within the traditional territories of the Coast Salish First Nations.  A dynamic inter-island process that started in 2017 has led to three collaborative initiatives:

 

1. Gulf Islands FOOD CO-OP SERVICES (here):  facilitating inter-island cooperation in order to create new resources and practical supports, for our amazing Southern Gulf Islands food producers, valued eaters, and local food sustainability!

This includes welcoming Indigenous producers, and also following up on key priorities from the Southern Gulf Islands Food & Agriculture Strategy.

 

2. Gulf Islands FOOD REGISTRY:  promoting food producers of all sizes and types, and island food groups, plus now we’ve added a related Ecommerce system (for producer bulk buys, and future multi-producer online selling)

 

3. Food Co-op CALENDAR:  for food and educational events, in our warm and friendly Southern Gulf Islands of British Columbia.

 

We invite you to dig into the key links or green menu items above, and to contact info@gulfislandsfoodco-op.org with any questions or feedback.  Our islands are stronger when we co-operate!
