In February during the 2020 Winter Games NEAT worked with the PRRD to divert organic waste from the Games. We embarked on a pilot project with the Ministry of Environment and the Regional District that mirrored a program in Fort Nelson where they have been using worms to reduce their organic waste.

NEAT, in partnership with NOURISH, diverted most of the unserved food to local residents through the Food Bank and the amount of anticipated garbage was much less than we estimated (yay!). This success left us with a new challenge – we need more organic waste to complete the pilot project.
