The Alberni Valley Food Security Group promotes a wide variety of community initiatives and facilitates several unique programs. We are always looking to expand our work so feel free to reach out if you would like to support food security our area.
Food Rx Box
This is an innovative partnership between AVFSG, Island Health, Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District and local food producers designed to deliver a weekly box of nutritious food to families identified as nutritionally vulnerable.
The Gleaning Project
In this program volunteers pick fruit on private and public properties throughout the Alberni Valley. Harvests are shared amongst pickers, home owners and local charities allowing thousands of pounds of fruit to be distributed throughout the community.
This includes a large variety of projects brought together by a collaborative initiative of local agricultural groups. It aims to encourage and assist local residents with backyard food production in the Alberni Valley through programs and events.
