GREEN FOOD BOX PROGRAM MUCH APPRECIATED BY COMMUNITIES DURING THE PANDEMIC

April 17, 2020 – Over the past few weeks, the Crysler Green Food Box Program has practically tripled its orders. Over 140 boxes were distributed on a biweekly basis throughout the communities of Crysler, Finch, Moose Creek, and most recently, Maxville. The Green Food Box Program in Bourget has equally achieved great success as of late, with a significant increase in the number of boxes distributed.


For Dominique Lanteigne, Health Promoter at the CSCE and the one in charge of the Green Food Box Program in Crysler, this substantial rise indicates that the program is both beneficial and necessary for rural communities, especially during these difficult times. “I am so proud to be part of such a great team. The Green Food Box Program really helps the community during these exceptional circumstances. I would like to thank the many volunteers and community partners who make all this possible!” said Dominique.

Please note that packaging and distribution of Green Food Boxes are done in compliance with health, hygiene and safety regulations in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, all employees, volunteers and clients must adhere to social distancing guidelines.
