Good Food Box is ­collecting donations to feed Fernwood families in ­need

›› Micqualyn Waldie


Please consider donating to Give the Gift of Good Food, our holiday drive to ­provide fresh produce to ­families who might not otherwise have access to it. The great thing about this program is, instead of a ­one-time food hamper, it keeps giving the whole year.

Each family selected will receive a box of fruit and veggies every other week for 2014. Families accessing food banks generally receive non-perishable items. Our goal is to add nutritious produce to the equation.

For every $18 donation, a ­family will receive one Good Food Box. For every $450 raised, we will ­provide one family with a year’s worth of Good Food Boxes. Each ­donation, no matter how big or small, makes a huge difference and helps when it’s hardest for people to feed their family.

To donate, call 250-381-1552 ext.100. Thanks to all the amazing volunteers who keep this program going year round.
