Our Work

We improve our local food systems by creating space for change.

Here are a few examples of projects we work on.

SALIM - Smart Cities Challenge

description

SALIM is a multi-stakeholder initiative whose mission is to optimize the supply network of fresh and local products to the most vulnerable Montrealers. It will facilitate community organizations’ access to fresh food through a network of shared infrastructure and equipment; a platform for pooling supplies, inventory, donations and distribution; as well as better access to information and data. SALIM is an initiative led by Récolte as part of the Smart Cities Challenge funded by the City of Montreal and Infrastructure Canada.
