How Can I help?
There are a lot of ways you can help the Good Food Box Program supply affordable, fresh food to the people of Thunder Bay!
We welcome volunteers who are interested in participating in a range of activities and appreciate the energy, enthusiasm and commitment they bring to the program. Volunteers assist the Good Food Box Program in many ways:
- Sort and pack the produce
- Wash the bins
- Deliver the produce to neighbourhood Host-Sites
- Help write the monthly newsletter
- Contribute recipes, food and cooking tips to the monthly newsletter
Why not get your workplace involved? The Good Food Box Program collaborated with TBaytel in July 2019. TBaytel Sales volunteered with us on pack day and made a $500 donation to purchase food box coupons and volunteer bus passes. Watch a short clip here!
For more information on volunteering, please call Sherry at (807) 345-7819 or email [email protected].
