Foodshare offers families Christmas gift of healthy eating

NANAIMO – Society gives families the gift of proper nutrition.

Nanaimo Foodshare Society is giving families the gift of healthy eating this Christmas.

For $10, the society’s Good Food Box program provides families with a box of fresh fruits and vegetables.

But despite the low cost, an increasing number of families in Nanaimo cannot afford the $10, so Foodshare encourages the community to sponsor a family for six months.

Sixty dollars provides one box per month for half a year. Donations can be for one or more families. Every donation goes directly to the food cost.

Program participants can provide the name and contact information of the family they wish to sponsor or, allow Foodshare to select a family for them.

For more information, please contact Foodshare at 250-753-9393.
