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