The North Channel Healthy Kids Community Challenge is supporting the Good Food Box program and encouraging families with children 12 and under to participate. Healthy Kids Community Challenge will pay 50% of the cost from August to December 2017 (usual cost is $20, less 50% = $10 cost/family with children 12 and under). The Good Food Box is a brimming box of fresh fruits and vegetables delivered to you during the 3rd week of every month. It supports local and Ontario farmers.
To order a Good Food Box or for more information contact your municipal office, Thessalon First Nation Health Centre or Blind River Best Start Hub.
