Promoting collaboration over competition.
As an initiative of the Victoria Community Food Hub Society with a mandate of "Good Food For All," we bring together the ability to develop processing infrastructure at Kitchen Connect, our community food hub, with a peer mentorship and training program that helps to provide work experience and employability skills to youth, newcomers, and folks experiencing barriers to employment. More experienced food sector workers is a good thing for our local food economy. We will work to build an in-house processing team that could be a labour pool for all members. By making produce and processed goods from our kitchen available to our charity and community partners through the South Island FarmHub, we are working to both build strong local food businesses and feed our community.
Good Food for All
To promote a healthy and sustainable food system in the Capital Region.
Ensuring that this food system provides healthy food to the most vulnerable people in our community and works to increase their resources, food skills, and social connections for a healthier food secure future.
Kitchen Connect will become a location that utilizes facilities, equipment, training, and services to integrate, support and act as a catalyst for growth of the local food economy.
How We Are Different
The model strives to further innovative collaboration between food rescue initiatives, food handling, and preparation training.
What We Do
The Hub will aim to support marginalized populations, food processing entrepreneurs, farmers, social innovators, and community members through shared access to infrastructure, programming, and resources.
The Victoria Community Food Hub Society (VCFHS) was incorporated as a Charity in 2013.
