This program is halted due to the COVID Pandemic.

Reminder that the Good Food Box order is once a month on the said date by 4:30 pm, by calling Kelly Rowlinson from Child Care Algoma at 705-248-2043.  The cost is $20 per food box.

This is open to everyone.  There’s 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.
