About Us

Established in 1997 and registered as a charity in 2000, Nanaimo Foodshare Society connects the community with resources, skills, and knowledge to create change that increases healthy food for everyone.

Specifically, we:

  • Work with community partners to address hunger in the community
  • Build food skills
  • Bring the community together to share resources
  • Build community capacity to provide healthy foods to everyone.

Through our programs, we support local sustainable food, help build food policy and develop coordinated community strategies to improve food security.

Our mission: “Through education and facilitation, we strengthen and support sustainable community food systems.”

Our vision: “Our community food systems provide enough healthy local food for all to be nourished.”
