About TUCG

The Tofino Ucluelet Culinary Guild (TUCG) is a non-profit, member run social enterprise organization that works to connect our communities’ restaurants, families and grocery stores with local farmers and food producers.  Through group buying and education we strive to make local food more accessible and affordable while at the same time providing a reliable market for some of our region’s best producers.  In the past 8 years we have become one of the province’s most dynamic food hubs, which includes wholesale distribution, online ordering for residents, a local food box program as well as participating in various west coast markets.

Who We Are Looking For

Any candidate who applies will be a TUCG ambassador - taking pride in our products and mission and be effective in sharing that knowledge. You will also be asked to help fill in shifts for our regular deliveries as well as needed.
