Soulfood is a farm-to-table whole foods restaurant serving beautiful, vibrant, colourful, healing food in a happy, peaceful and welcoming space. All of our food is local and/or organic. Seriously, everything.
We want to provide good, clean, kind food sourced as much as possible from local, sustainable suppliers. We will focus primarily on seasonal and local food but we also love nuts, avocados and mangoes (among other exotic foods) and want to include these beautiful, healing global food into our diets.
Food means real food! Food from the Earth that you grow and raise yourself that does not require a science lab to get onto your plate. Good food to us means healthful, optimal for your body, and leaves you with a feeling of nourishment. Good food tastes delicious and fresh. Good food is mostly local and seasonal. Clean food means food that is grown according to organic farming practices and does not include additives, preservatives, dyes or other harmful and unnecessary add ins. Clean food also means considering packaging and food miles to ensure a minimal footprint on the environment.
Kind food means using ethical and humane farming practices. We use grass-fed and finished (where appropriate for the animal) animal products and ensure the animals are allowed to thrive in manners appropriate for their species. We seek out fair trade products that support the farmers and their workers. We educate ourselves on the food we eat. We know how to grow food. We make an effort to know our farmers and growers. We find alternative sources when what is available does not agree with our values. We work with others to cut down on packaging and transportation. We connect with other like-minded individuals to build a sense of community around food.
