Last Box of 2015!

It has been an amazing year for the Halton Fresh Food Box and I could not prouder to a part of it. I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone involved in this amazing program. A thank you to all of our customers who make this program one of the largest in North America, growing to nearly 1,000 boxes a month on average. To our volunteers who do an incredible job week in and week out.  I am always blown away by the commitment, dedication and expertise that they all bring to the program, if you haven’t had a chance to see the production of the boxes it is truly a think to behold, a shining example of what a community can accomplish. To Brenda Moher, the recently retired architect of everything this program has become, Jeanne Bullock our volunteer coordinator who helps to make everything run so well every single week. To our Board Of Directors who volunteer their time to steer this program in positive directions, working behind the scenes, fundraising, marketing, finances, they do it all. A special thanks as well to the Trillium Foundation and the Region of Halton who help to fund this project and its improvements, it would not be possible without this assistance and dedication to providing healthy affordable produce to the residents of Halton Region.

Happy Holidays to all of you and thank you so very much for all that you do. We will see you in the New Year!

We have a double packing this week for Burlington on Tuesday and Halton Hills on Wednesday. The weather just keeps extending this years Ontario growing season and Ontario Broccoli will be making an appearance in both Burlington and Halton Hills boxes this week. Extremely high price for imports this year have also allowed Ontario farmers to get a little creative and to keep produce costs down we have seen some very interesting things come out of our greenhouses. This week we will have Ontario grown greenhouse romaine that looks twice as beautiful, three times as fresh and with half the cost of the current romaine imports. Take a look:
