COVID-19 Community Response Framework

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Golden Community Coop has been convening meetings with community stakeholders to understand the challenges and opportunities faced by residents, businesses, service providers and so forth. Bringing people together has been remarkably encouraging for those who are feeling like they are working in silos under tough conditions with no end in sight.

The insights shared in these meetings help us to collectively take actions to support the community and position ourselves to move through the challenges of the pandemic informed and proactively preparing for the future.

The “Golden Guidelines”

You’ll see this project all over town. In partnership with Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce, we promoted a poster campaign and site visits to local businesses to spread consistent safety messaging for COVID-19.

Food security

Partnering with Local Food Matters and the Golden Food Bank Society, the Coop provided pots, soil, seeds and tomato seedlings to clients of the Food Bank to take home and grow their own food during the summer of 2020 when food security was on many people’s minds.
