Three Kamloops food businesses have joined forces in an effort to keep local dollars at home this holiday season and help the health-care industry at the same time.

Wild Mountain Jun, Local Pulse and Honest Elixirs are three businesses that participate in the local farmers’ market and have embarked on a project called the Kamloops Holiday Foodie Box. Proceeds will directly support Royal Inland Hospital Foundation.

“Since people can’t shop local at holiday craft fairs this year, we put our heads together to figure out how to bring the craft fair to the safety of people’s homes.” Wild Mountain Jun owner and project lead Naomi Spendiff said in a press release.

The initiative’s goal is to support Kamloops makers and health-care workers. Kamloops citizens can order online and choose from three box sizes: small, medium and deluxe, starting at $65. Every item in the box is provided by a Kamloops business.

“With the Foodie Box, our goal is to provide an online outlet for Kamloopsians to buy locally made gifts, support our local producers and give back to the health-care heroes who have never stopped working hard to keep us safe and healthy,” Local Pulse owner and project organizer Kent Fawcett said.

Contact-free delivery and curb-side pickup options will be available for the boxes from Dec. 11 to 20. The deadline to order a Kamloops Holiday Foodie Box is next Friday, Dec. 4, at 5 p.m.

Orders can be placed here.
