The way we produce and consume food lies at the heart of our global health, environmental, economic and even political crises. The industrial food system is broken and the harm it creates is accelerating at a scary rate.
Even if we are personally able to consistently buy healthy, local foods, it is still very difficult not to generate an excessive amount of packaging and energetic waste. Now, finally, there is an affordable and truly planet-friendly option.
WAWWE provides an alternate way to feed your family
WAWWE is a Social Enterprise - founded on community building rather than profit building. We provide nutritious food at very affordable rates. Wholesome ingredients are sourced from sustainable local farms directly into our local kitchen where Haidee Hart and her team of amazing Salt Spring chefs prepare them into delicious meals. These are delivered fresh to your doorstep with electric vehicles and zero single-use packaging. Containers are collected during our next delivery, washed and refilled with another day’s healthy and delicious food.
WAWWE makes it possible to shift effortlessly to a full or partial plant-based diet
Our meal service includes 13 plant-based meals per week. It provides a great foundation for either a full or partial plant-based diet. WAWWE meals as well as snacks, desserts and pantry items from other great local kitchens can also be purchased a la carte and included in your delivery.
Every WAWWE meal you eat or gift makes the world a better place
Together we can support humanity’s shift into a healthy relationship with food. Not only will you feel amazing from eating nutritious and delicious WAWWE food, but your actions will have an immediate and positive impact on our community and planet. Our collective success is measured by the number of truly planet-friendly meals we serve each week. Every dollar we earn will be reinvested into making our meals available to more people, while decreasing the negative environmental impact of how food is currently produced and consumed.

We Are What We Eat
Not only in terms of personal health but also our collective health and the health of our planet, We Are What We Eat. There is one place that nearly everything that matters most in this world converges – our forks. What we decide to put on our forks each meal affects not just ourselves, but also our communities and our precious planet.
Unfortunately, the industrial food system and the nutrient-poor, calorie-dense, high-sugar refined food it pumps out is causing most of the illnesses seen by doctors today. The harm the industrial food system is doing to our bodies is also part of a complex web of harm being done to the planet – to the degradation of our environment, air, and water, and to the future potential for our children to live healthy, vibrant lives.
