The Good Food Box (GFB) program is set up to encourage healthy eating and offset the cost of expensive fruits and vegetables. We have partnered with the Dawson Creek Co-op to offer this to the community.
The GFBs are available on the first and the third Thursdays of each month at a cost of $10 for a half box and $20 for a full box.
For most of us, fruits and vegetables are taken for granted. However, for many families that we serve, fresh produce is a luxury they cannot afford and they are therefor they are unable to pay for their Good Food Box. Through our sponsorship program we are able to hand out 250+ free Good Food Boxes each month to those who are in this situation.
If you are interested in sponsoring a family or individual to recieve Good Food Box please let us know. The cost is $20/month or $240/year. You can choose the amount of time that works for you. This is an excellent project for classrooms, businesses and groups to fundraise together and sponsor a Good Food Box for a year. The best part is that this is you helping those in your own community! Donation receipts are issued in January and will be mailed to you.
Please also take time to stop by the Dawson Creek Co-op and thank them for their generous contribution to this program and pick up some groceries. We could not do this with out them. Our community would not be the same with out the help of community minded businesses like the Dawson Creek Co-op.
Donations can be made by cash, cheque debit or credit. Cheques should be written to Bethel Pentecostal Church and please indicate Good Food Box Program on the subject line so it is appropriately designated to this fund.
