How Funding Helps the Community Through the GGFB
? Our produce is provided at cost; we fundraise to cover overhead,
which is over $400.00 per month.
? Transportation costs, the plastic liners, printing the monthly newsletter
are our major costs.
? There is no paid staff member in our program.
? Our volunteers contribute a total of 120 hours per month, over half of
that on the pack day (3rd Weds. of each month).
? Our volunteer drivers deliver over 70 boxes each month to families who cannot get out to pick up the
30 lb. bags of produce.
? We either donate directly, or seek donors to help provide free boxes to fixed-income families who are
given our contact information from their Public Health Nurse, social worker, clergy etc.
? We cover Collingwood, Clearview (Stayner, Creemore, New Lowell), and Wasaga Beach.
? On April 16 this year we celebrated our 5th anniversary in the South Georgian Bay Region.
