  • Sheila MalcolmsonMLA, Nanaimo

    "Through its community and school programs, [Nanaimo Foodshare Society] is teaching people about buying food in season, shopping locally, cooking from scratch, food management, how to compost, how to cut the amount of food wasted."

  • Paul ManlyMP, Nanaimo-Ladysmith

    "So much of the food we eat here on Vancouver Island is brought in from elsewhere, posing challenges around environmental sustainability and food security. Through its important work on urban farming, restorative agriculture projects and employment skills training, Nanaimo Foodshare Society is helping build a healthy, sustainable and local food system while providing an inclusive work environment for individuals from vulnerable populations. It’s a great community organization that benefits us all.”
