Why this project?
WAWWE is an independently funded Social Enterprise - building community instead of profits. We are changing the way we consume food products so it is healthier at all levels - our bodies, our community, and the planet. We support our local farmers and economy, eliminate single-use food packaging and transport emissions, and simply make it a breeze for Saltspringers to nourish themselves with local fresh wholesome delicious food.
In our 6 month trial during 2021 we delivered 40,000 planet-friendly meals with electric vehicles to Saltspringers. Our collective impact on the local food system was inspiring, and showed us the demand was there for change. We still have so much more work to do to expand these services to be a sustainable cornerstone of our community. See https://wawwe.ca/pages/why-
Help us realize a local food revolution. There are many ways to contribute to the WAWWE initiative and we need your help. We are all in community here, so talk to us.
