The Community Food Project

At ColdStar Solutions, we believe food provides an opportunity to share and connect, and we have a responsibility to give back to the communities that support us.

Our Mission

The Community Food Project is our initiative to give, share, and connect with the people in our communities.

How It Works

  • Monthly Donations: Every month, ColdStar donates food to non-profit agencies on Vancouver Island. We encourage food suppliers to donate mis-shipped, mislabeled, and package-damaged products instead of discarding them. We also purchase high-protein items like cheese to supplement donations.
  • Distribution: Bulk food items such as chicken, cheese, eggs, meat, peanut butter, yogurt, and bread are delivered to the Blanshard Community Centre in Victoria. Volunteers then divide these donations, and other Neighbourhood Houses collect their shares.
  • Usage: The donated food helps create healthy meals and snacks for children, low-income families, at-risk youth, and isolated seniors. Neighbourhood Houses provide good nutrition, cooking lessons, and a supportive environment for these individuals.
