Lisa McIntosh from Urban Harvest Organic Delivery will also be featured for a lunchtime Q&A session. From idea to implementation and the ongoing development of the business, a core dedication to social responsibility and the environment have characterized Urban Harvest. “We incorporate a strong environmental focus into our work, from ensuring produce waste goes to local chickens and bunnies, to saving and returning produce boxes to farmers for re-use, to coordinating shipments from local suppliers to minimize food miles. On the social side, we are committed to a ‘no frills’, bare bones overhead, to ensure that prices are kept affordable for customers, while suppliers and staff are paid fairly. We also support a wide range of events and organizations on a regular basis.”
