We aim to inspire people to grow and cook fresh and healthy foods, and to build a stronger community.

Start Fresh took root with founder Michael Buffett. It started out as a non-profit organization that facilitates culinary education programming to inspire people about food; teaching employment and life skills, while creating access to meaningful employment. This is how our team was formed, and the talented chefs involved in this project are taking the knowledge and skills from this experience to build a Collaborative Kitchen, creating a truly community kitchen that will host events, produce catering, and facilitate boutique cooking classes.

Working with our Gold Sponsor, Bernardin, Start Fresh embraces canning with seasonal Okanagan produce.
