Deep Roots Food Hub – 2021 Annual General Meeting Invitation – Nov 17, 2021
Deep Roots Food Hub (DRFH) is a not-for-profit corporation committed to transforming the local food system by collaborating with partners and stakeholders to promote growing, storing and eating local. Our goal is to connect people in our community with healthy, affordable, accessible, and locally grown produce, with special attention to food insecurity. Our vision is for a sustainable and scalable food system that is local…..everywhere… to benefit the planet and its people.
More specifically, DRFH supports local growers who use organic and regenerative methods that preserve both the nutritional value of food, and the health of our environment. DRFH also operates an off-grid root storage facility* that will make locally grown produce available throughout the Canadian Winter.
