We are thrilled to announce that our Good Food Box Program has received a $63,800 Resilient Communities Fund grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation!
Over 24 months, these funds will help the Good Food Box Program recover from impacts of COVID-19 and build resiliency by developing a strategic plan for more sustainable, flexible revenue generation, cost recovery and procurement. We will explore shifting our program into an innovative, full-scale social enterprise, including a website redesign that integrates e-commerce options.
Most importantly, at a time when food costs are ever-increasing and demand for Good Food Boxes is growing, we will continue to supply affordable, healthy food to our customers!
The Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) is an agency of the Government of Ontario with a mission to build healthy and vibrant communities in Ontario. In 2020, OTF launched the Resilient Communities Fund to support Ontario’s non-profit sector as it rebuilds its capacity from the impacts of COVID-19.
