food, wine, shelter ...
At Shelter, we use local, organic ingredients and ethically raised, all-natural meats whenever possible. The salmon, halibut and prawns are caught by Tofino fisherman, the poultry is free run and farmed on Vancouver Island. We offer hormone free, grass-fed beef, as well as anti-biotic and hormone free pork, including bacon from the Fraser Valley.
Located behind the restaurant is a garden we started in 2010 that supplies produce and fresh herbs to the kitchen and bar for many months of the year. In addition, we have implemented an extensive two-tier composting program as well as a rainwater catchment system that helps reduce our dependancy on our delicate municipal water source.
We aim to minimize our global footprint whenever possible, and are happy to be able to work with like-minded suppliers. With the help of the Tofino Ucluelet Culinary Guild, we are consistently moving forward in the world of sustainability and local cuisine. Afterall there is no more a gracious host than one who shares with their guests what their habitat has provided.
