Description

No automatic alt text available.

For several years, the Sudbury & District Good Food Box program has made it possible for residents of Sudbury and the surrounding communities to purchase fresh produce at wholesale prices.   

This summer, the Sudbury & District Good Food Box Program will be applying its model for affordable fresh produce to a traveling pop-up market! The ‘Good Food Box MARCHÉ de la boîte de bonne bouffe’ will make short, regular tops in select residential neighbourhoods that are underserved by grocery stores.

As with the existing Good Food Box program, the market will operate on a not-for-profit basis, with bulk purchasing discounts getting passed on to market patrons. The market will have the added advantage of being more frequent than the monthly Good Food Box program, and people will be able to choose the items they buy. Ultimately, the goal is to encourage local families to make healthy food choices by making it easier for them to access a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Funded through the Healthy Kids Community Challenge, the Good Food Box MARCHÉ de la boîte de bonne bouffe is working with the Best Start Hubs and the Sudbury & District Health Unit to identify market locations where children and families often gather, and where grocery store access is limited.

As a pilot project, the market will operate in two neighbourhoods this summer, as follows:

When:  Every Tuesday, starting July 11, 2017
Time:  3:30 pm to 5:30pm
Where: Morel Family Foundation Park (Adamsdale Playground) 270 Second Avenue, Sudbury

AND

When: Every Wednesday, starting July 12, 2017
Time: 3:30 pm- 5:00 pm (NEW TIME- starting Sept. 6th, 2017)
Where: Spencer Park, Power Street, Copper Cliff

Since the market will be not-for-profit, promotional efforts as well as market set-up and take-down duties will require the assistance of volunteers. Anyone interested in getting involved should contact the Good Food Box Program Coordinator at 705-671-1941 ext. 258.   

 

Many of these events have been added by community partners. While we make every effort to make sure the details are correct, mistakes can happen. Contact the agency directly to confirm details.
