Foodshare is coming to town. The food-justice organization is moving to the LEF building on Industry street.
This is great news—and I’d be willing to bet that with a few volunteers we could get a Good Food Box program going.
The GFB is awesome: for $18, they deliver a weekly recycling-container-size box of fresh fruits and vegetables to a neighbourhood community organizer. (A small box is $13.) We had one in our old neighbourhood, and we loved it.
Other, yuppier companies like Mama Earth run the same kind of business, but they’re twice the price and half as cool. The Good Food Box is a non-profit, volunteer-driven, justice-focused organization.
Let’s do it! Who will volunteer to be the coordinator?
Thanks to Sophia for the tip.
