Community is the spirit of every town - but especially here in Revelstoke.
Whether it is improving food security or sponsoring a local team, we are committed to making Revelstoke an even better place to live, work and play! We are proud to be a part of Revy through our partnerships, sponsorships and donations.
Adequate food security is an ongoing battle for many communities and families throughout Canada. As a major part of the food ecosystem within Revy, it is our responsibility to ensure access to healthy and affordable food. Improving food security is part of our business model, where we do our very best to keep food prices low through regular competitive pricing and awesome sales for our customers.
Another way we're working to improve food security is through our work with the schools in Revelstoke. We established the first breakfast program with Columbia Park Elementary school in 2016 by donating a wholesome breakfast. And thanks to all the hard work of the volunteering parents and teachers, this program has grown from an occasional program in one elementary school to a daily program in all of the elementary schools (as well as the secondary school) in Revelstoke.
We also work in partnership with the Food Recovery Program through Community Connections Revelstoke to reduce food waste. Any food that cannot be sold from our store is donated every week to the Food Recovery Program to be made available to families in need. Additionally, we donate whole pallets of non-perishables to the Food Bank several times a year. To learn more about food security and Community Connections, please visit them here.
As a small local business, we support local businesses and restaurants!
We partner with Frisby Ridge Teriyaki Restaurant, a local favourite since 1999, to bring the best sushi possible for our customers. Fresh sushi is made by Frisby Ridge and available in our deli for your convenience! To learn more about the rest of Frisby Ridge's delicious menu, visit them here.
We also partner with Stoke the Fire, a local grower and producer of hot peppers and sauces. Their fiery hot sauces are available all year round in our store! For more info, check them out here.
Padrino's Pizzeria is a local favourite and we sell their delicious in-house garlic aioli.
Other local entrepreneurs and products from BC that we support include: Stoke Roasted Coffee, Dose Coffee and First Light Farms from Revelstoke, D Dutchman Dairy from Sicamous, Madalea Growers Blueberry Farm from Mara, and Fresh is Best Salsa from Kamloops - to name a few.
