Exciting news Strathcona: we now have a Good Food Box location in the ‘hood! For those of you that are not familiar with the Good Food Box, it is a non-profit fresh fruit and vegetable distribution program coordinated in the City of Hamilton by Environment Hamilton. It makes healthy fresh food affordable and accessible to everyone. For only $15 you receive a box of fresh quality produce worth $25 or more. Food is purchased at wholesale prices, with a preference for Ontario farmers. Pick ups take place the third Wednesday of every month. Understanding that with everyone’s busy schedules convenience is key EH set up a series of hubs across the city.
Thanks to the hard work of the Strathcona Neighbours’ Network and the generous support of our community partners at Crossfire Assembly the Good Food Box will available monthly, beginning May 16th, at Crossfire Assembly (458 King Street West).
