SOCIAL ENTERPRISE | We are going to start featuring more frequently, the emerging social enterprise and the cooperative sectors in our city, province/country. Our aim is to spotlight creative, empowering and new economic development initiatives that are incrementally contributing to the well-being of individuals and communities by creating meaningful employment, a sense of dignity-of-labour and deep belonging.
COMMUNITY ECONOMICS | Some may be related to new technologies, others to goods & services, and so forth. What they have in common is the remarkable enthusiasm, resilience and in some cases visionary calling among those leading and/or participating in such endeavours. No venture of such nature is without risk of failure – yet, those actively engaged in this path towards economic self-reliance show an incredible level of tolerance to risk, and extraordinary stamina – it is indeed a powerful calling!
THE ORGANIC BOX: https://www.theorganicbox.ca/ | If the old saying that “you are what you eat” is true, it would just make sense to try to find the best quality food that you can for you & your family. The Organic Box has grown in a few short years to become Edmonton’s largest organic food delivery service. The family-owned company serves thousands of families and businesses in this city each week, delivering everything from fresh fruits and vegetables to baked goods, milk and hundreds of other pantry items – all of it certified organic.
VERTO LABOUR SERVICES: http://www.youcan.ca/programs/verto | Companies that hire Verto Labour Services are looking for a good day’s work – and that is exactly what they get. Eager young workers, trained in basic worksite rules, showing up on time, supported by a crew leader and ready to do whatever needs to be done. Verto is an off-shoot of YOUCAN Youth Services, an organization that has provided programs for at-risk youth in Edmonton for over a decade.
EQUI-TEA MULTICULTURAL CATERING: http://mchb.org/programs/equi-tea-multicultural-catering/ | Equi-tea is a social enterprise operated by the Multicultural Health Brokers Co-op. For the past year, The Multicultural Health Brokers Co-op has truly enjoyed serving you all with the food we most love ourselves through Equi-tea Catering. Delicious food, excellent service and very much worth of your support.
SERVICE & COMMUNITY | As usual, we remain at your service. YOU and the individuals & communities we serve remain at the center of what we do. We thank you for your support and welcome your feedback; if we can be helpful, don’t hesitate to get in touch. And, if you appreciate this BLOG “like it” “follow it” or “share it.” – Many thanks!
