WAWWE launches Farm Fresh Meal Delivery on Salt Spring Island Using Electric Vehicles and Zero Single-use Packaging

The new WAWWE food experience is a truly planet-friendly way to feed islanders.

WAWWE – We Are What We Eat – is a new meal delivery service that delivers plant-based, ready-to-eat meals anywhere on Salt Spring Island.

“We wanted to create an easy, affordable way for people to be able to eat healthy, local food, eliminate packaging, support regenerative farming and save time.” says co-founder David Marshall.

The grassroots initiative is not looking to make a profit, but rather to make healthy, delicious and truly planet-friendly food available for all. Wholesome ingredients are sourced from sustainable local farms directly into a local kitchen where Haidee Hart and her team of amazing Salt Spring chefs prepare them into delicious meals. These are delivered fresh right to the doorstep with electric vehicles and zero single-use packaging. Containers are collected during the next delivery, washed and refilled with another day’s healthy and delicious food.

The inspiration behind WAWWE is the realization that the way food is produced and consumed lies at the heart of humanity’s global health, environmental, economic and even political crises. The industrial food system is broken and the harm it creates is accelerating at a scary rate.

Even if people are able to consistently buy healthy, local foods, there is still no way not to generate an excessive amount of packaging and energetic waste. Now, finally, there is an affordable and truly planet-friendly option, WAWWE.

WAWWE makes it possible to shift effortlessly to a full or partial plant-based diet. The meal service includes 13 plant-based meals per week. Drawing inspiration from the farms, forests and ocean around Salt Spring Island, Haidee’s menus reflect the exceptional ingredients that the pacific northwest has to offer. Wooden crates of fully prepared meals with zero single-use packaging are delivered using 100% electric vehicles. Crates arrive on doorsteps Sunday and Tuesday afternoons and contain dinner for that evening as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner for the next couple of days – a great foundation for either a full or partial plant-based diet. WAWWE meals as well as snacks, desserts and pantry items from other great local kitchens can also be purchased a la carte and included in the delivery.
