We improve our local food systems by creating space for change.
Here are a few examples of projects we work on.
SALIM - Montréal in common
SALIM's mission is to strengthen the supply network of healthy and local products for community food organizations while improving market access for local producers through physical and digital infrastructures.
Its goal is to make healthy food from local agriculture more accessible to people who suffered of food insecurity in Montreal.
SALIM is an initiative carried by Récolte in the context of Montréal in common.
