Providing access to healthy, local, high quality produce for all in Halton Region.
Healthy Food for All!
Every community needs access to healthy affordable foods to meet the nutrition/health needs. The Fresh Food Box for Halton program serves those in the communities of Halton Region in need particularly those living on limited incomes, seniors, and new Canadians, to have improved access to good quality, locally grown, more affordable fruits and vegetables delivered right to their own neighbourhood.
There are over 27,000 people living in Halton region on limited incomes which compromise their ability to feed themselves and their families a healthy diet. Food support programs are very challenged to incorporate fresh fruit and vegetables in their donation boxes.
The hope for Fresh Food Box for Halton is to expand and ensure those residing in Halton have adequate amounts of fresh produce.
