Oasis Café is intentional about being good stewards of the resources given. This is why we partner with organizations to minimize food waste, and eat locally and in-season whenever possible. Different organizaions include:
- Vancouver Food Runners - volunteer drivers help deliver baked goods surplus from local vendors
- FoodStash Foundation - they deliver fresh rescued food
- City Beet Farm - donates local organic produce weekly from June through October
In 2020, we conducted a waste reduction study. We are moving towards using reuseable, compostable or recyclable materials. As an example, we are now purchasing only compostable supplies for our take-away meals.
