In an effort to promote local small businesses, DirectFood.store features their vendors quite often. Customers can learn the story behind their business and food, such as the story of Cloverdale’s Bannock Queen, started by Donna Lee and her handmade bannock desserts inspired by her Indigenous and Scottish roots.
Through their Food Access Initiative program, they provide fresh food to local charities every month. They genuinely believe in the idea that everyone should have access to good and nutritious food, tying back to their own mission of serving food the way it is meant to be — Truly Farm to Table.
