FoodShare’s Good Food Programs connect families and communities with affordable, fresh, culturally diverse vegetables and fruit, increasing consumption of healthy produce and improving the income of Ontario family farms. Every year, we deliver 40,000 Good Food Boxes through 180 volunteer-run drop offs, and our Bulk Fresh Produce Program for Schools and Community Agencies delivers affordable fresh produce directly to over 300 locations, serving 70,000 children weekly. We help increase the availability of fresh affordable high-quality vegetables and fruit in food deserts, breaking down social isolation and creating vibrant public spaces, by supporting more than 20 Mobile and Good Food Markets within the City of Toronto and Ontario’s North through a partnership with Nishnawbe Aski Nation. With the Ontario Food Terminal, over 25 local farms, and the Ontario Good Food Box Network we are working to establish better food access and more direct farmer linkages through expanded food hubs.
