We Received a Thank You Letter in the Comox Valley Record

January 23, 2024

During the recent holiday season we received a thank you email from a customer, who also happens to be the mother of one of our newer and younger team members. We are so happy Pauline shared her feedback with us. We honestly had no idea what a big impact we were having on her son's life. This is a timely reminder that inclusivity and kindness are values that come from action and intention. 

This statement is from our Community Commitment which you can find here on our website.

Kindness & Inclusion. Edible Island is committed to cultivating a culture of kindness and inclusion. We are a diverse community of wonderfully unique individuals and we strive to be as welcoming as possible to everyone – all colours, all religions, all backgrounds and all those in the LGBTQ community are welcome with open arms at Edible Island. We believe we are better together and we are stronger together. We are committed to shifting cultural biases and to growing our awareness of issues that impact the many marginalised communities. We will offer help where we can, and use our voice to protect others dignity and safety. In recruiting for our team, and opening our doors to customers, we welcome the unique contributions that so many of you bring in terms of culture, ethnicity, race, sex, gender identity and expression, nation of origin, age, languages spoken, veteran’s status, colour, religion, disability, sexual orientation, education and beliefs. We appreciate you, and thank you for being YOU.

​We understand that 'equality' is not always the case, and sadly many folks are not given fair opportunities to tap into their potential and shine. We are proud to be in a position to support a wonderful and diverse​ community at our store, and we extend a sincere thank you to you all for making our contribution to this community possible. We appreciate that you welcome us, and our diverse and wonderful team, and in doing so make our in store experience mutually rewarding.

Kindness is powerful! Let's all keep it coming.
