Everyone deserves to be healthy. Let's get local produce to people in need especially during COVID. We're connecting low income families and seniors in the West Kootenays with farm fresh local, organic food once a week to help ensure those people who need it most have access to healthy food.

Local organic food fresh from the farm, straight to familieswho need it most

Farms to Friends is about local food security & our most vulnerable residents.

Too often the lowest income people are hit the hardest by emergencies and disasters. The COVID-19 pandemic is no exception. Join the Hillties in donating to help 54 families in the West Kootenays who need help supporting their families.

Victoria McAllister, in Balfour, helped us connect with families in need in her area:

“I have been the principal at Redfish Elementary, a K-7 school near Balfour for the past two years. Our school, PAC and community organizations have been supporting families whose livelihoods have been impacted by the pandemic. We were worried about how those families would be supported through the summer. We were thrilled when the EcoSociety contacted us to see if we thought some families might want fruit and veggie boxes brought right to the community. When I reached out to our families, there was instant interest. Those families who have been able to access this weekly opportunity for healthy, local, easily accessible food are feeling supported and connected. And it makes me happy knowing our students whose families have been really disrupted by this bumpy economic time are getting healthy food while school is out. Huge gratitude to the EcoSociety and its supporters for making this happen.”
