Good Food Box

This program is halted  and will not be continuing at this time.

Reminder that the Good Food Box was coordinated by Kelly Rowlinson from Child Care Algoma at 705-248-2043.  The cost was $20 per food box in the past.

This was open to everyone.  There was a great selection of fruit and vegetables of the season.  This program was initiated by the North Channel Healthy Communities Challenge and was responsible for the cost of the subsidy.

Pick up was the following week at Child Care Algoma.  Payment is due when ordering. You will get a phone call once the boxes have arrived for pick up.
