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

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.
