Good Food Box (GFB) programs work to ensure that individuals and families have access to fresh fruits and vegetables through various models of centralized purchasing and coordination. Often these programs also offer community member participation, create innovative partnerships between service providers, and support local agriculture. During this webinar, we heard about various models of good food box and market programs, the community needs they are working to fill, and some of the best practices and common challenges from across the province. Panelists included Natasha Beaudin from Ottawa Good Food Box & Good Food Markets, Debbie Field of FoodShare, Ruth Ingersoll of Community Development Council of Quinte, Lorna McCue from Ontario Healthy Communities Coalition, and Renee Roth & Bridget King from Sudbury and District Good Food Box.
This webinar aired on December 11, 2014. It is the second in a series of conversations around food access and policy within the Sustain Ontario network and we invite you to consider taking part.
