HEALTHY & SUSTAINABLE FOOD PROGRAM
The Wave Food Program began before the pandemic with the idea that every business and every person can make a meaningful effort to promote sustainability in agriculture and the food industry, and to ensure safe and fair working conditions, and careful stewardship of ecosystems.
The impacts that COVID-19 has had on our partners, our food systems and our communities have only emboldened our resolve that the ideals we began with, in a regional community food system, are the path forward. Our food program looks differently than it did pre-pandemic, and that's the way it should be. We learned where our system fails and have found a way to shift to more equitable and resilient regional food systems.
The Wave Food Program increases local food recovery, gets people back to work, feeds the food insecure, and shifts to more resilient community food systems.
The program is inclusive of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities, from sourcing, to access to healthy and sustainable food.
