Where we’re at- November 2016
We’ve come a long way in a few months!! We are an incorporated not-for-profit and are now looking for funding partners to help us link together sustainable food initiatives in Canada. Our plan is to start in Ontario and grow organically from there.
We are able to offer support to help your farm, firm or foodhub setup a profile and store front. Or, if you are part of a food network in your local community, we’ll work with you to host a workshop that brings all the players together to explore how OFN can enable your regional food system.
We’ll chat by phone or skype (or meet with you in person if possible), advise you on a plan, do a ‘skeleton’ set up for you and mentor someone in your organization/community. We’ll help you run a ‘trial’ order cycle and get you ready to go ‘live’. We’ll monitor it all and help you solve any issues that arise.
We find that with this support, most farms, firms and foodhubs are great to ‘fly solo’ after a couple of months. BUT – if you are a particularly large or more complex hub, we can offer you a fee for service support package that provides more service if you wish.
