reTHINK Zero Waste
On February 1st 2022, reFRESH Marketplace launched reTHINK, an affordable zero waste initiative.
In addition to our fresh produce, organic dairy and local meat products, customers are now able to purchase our pre-packaged pantry staples in mason jars that can be reused or returned. These zero waste products are available to all customers, including individuals participating in the reFRESH Coupon Program.
reFRESH Coupon Program
The reFRESH Cowichan Coupon Program was initiated as a direct result of Covid-19 and the challenges it made to accessing fresh, nutritious food for many of our community members. The program provides 100 low-income families, seniors, and individuals a weekly $25 voucher to shop for groceries in the reFRESH Cowichan Marketplace. The weekly coupons can be used for almost all grocery items, including organic dairy, pantry staples, local meat, homemade frozen meals, and a wide variety of recovered produce.
