Many people in our food family may have already seen the recent news about our team, our company and our mission, but I wanted to write a little about what these messages mean and why we are telling these stories. <strong>Make Something Edmonton</strong> Last year when we started our project to build Western Canada's Largest Organic Food Hub, we invited our community in Edmonton and Northern Alberta to join us.  The idea was to build a centre of excellence here in Edmonton where local food producers could come together, share resources and infrastructure, and combine forces to push ahead the food agenda in our city.  So far our project has been a huge success and we are already expanding our offerings to the food community and our membership.  Its never been a better time to be a member of The Organic Box. <a title="Watch the Make Something Edmonton segment" href="" target="_blank">Watch the Make Something Edmonton Segment</a> [caption id="attachment_4934" align="aligncenter" width="960"]<a href="" target="_blank"><img class="wp-image-4934 size-full" src="/media/original_images/theline_ctv.jpg" alt="Production line in our Warehouse" width="960" height="536" /></a> Learn About Our Make Something Edmonton Project[/caption] <strong>Gateway Association</strong> In the fall of 2014 we were approached by the Gateway Association to explore the possibility of our company hiring one of their clients.  The Gateway Association has been working with Edmontonians with disabilities for the past 40 years, partnering to help their clients find employment opportunities and educating the community about this very special and productive workforce. We are constantly hiring workers for our warehouse and our production line and it was an easy decision to find a home for Nicole, one of our hardest working production team members.  You can watch here story here, and also learn about Gateway's new iPhone app that helps you find businesses like ours that are committed to inclusive employment. <a href="">Learn about Nicole and the Gateway Association</a> [caption id="attachment_4938" align="aligncenter" width="958"]<a href="" target="_blank"><img class="wp-image-4938 size-full" src="/media/original_images/nicole_ctv.jpg" alt="Nicole on CTV" width="958" height="537" /></a> Learn About Our Inclusive Hiring Policy and the New Gateway App[/caption]   We love telling our story and sharing some of the wonderful things we do to make our community better for everyone.  If you have ideas, comments or suggestions about how we can do more, please get in touch with our team and we would be excited to hear how we can be forever Growing Better Together.
