LUSH Valley is a charitable, non-profit organization focusing on food security – both at the kitchen table level and within the larger context of community. We support food-related projects that educate and empower the Comox Valley people towards personal wellness, community health and environmental stewardship. We are both a Good Food Organization with Community Food Centres Canada and a member of the Island Food Hubs. We provide leadership, support, resources and opportunities to the community while working directly with all levels of government.

Food Security exists when all community residents obtain a safe, culturally acceptable, nutritionally adequate diet through a sustainable food system that maximizes self-reliance and social justice. LUSH Valley supports local, sustainable food production. LUSH = Let Us Share the Harvest.
