The kitchen program is a vibrant area of the Farm. Nutritional and cooking skills are learnt daily during the preparation and service of the Farm lunch. Staff, participants and the general public come together to enjoy a hot meal Monday-Friday at 12:30. Community members wishing to join us are welcome by calling the main office at 250-746-4204 to reserve the day prior. We ask for a suggested donation of $7 per person and a reservation does not guarantee a table, but warns the kitchen staff to prepare enough food.
The kitchen program also works closely with other areas of the farm to create a sustainable operation. Fresh produce and eggs from the farm are used and served in the daily Farm lunches when in season. In addition vegetable peelings from the kitchen are contributed to the farms compost pile and table scraps turn into a tasty snack for the farm’s animals.
