Thunder Bay Good Food Box

PLEASE SEE UP-TO-DATE NEWS AND INFORMATION FOR GOOD FOOD BOX on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Good-Food-Box-Thunder-Bay-465037656859592/

The Good Food Box is a non-profit program for families and individuals who want to purchase quality, fresh, local produce at a lower price than shopping at grocery stores. Family sized food boxes are $25, while individual boxes are $15. Participants pay for the Good Food Box on the first Thursday of each month at a neighbourhood host site. The boxes are dropped off at the host site on the second last Thursday of each month. For more information about the program or host site locations please call (807) 345-7819, or email mailto:gfb@nwowc.org.

Buying a Good Food Box gives you a low cost way to get fresh fruits and vegetables delivered to your neighbourhood or building. Produce is ordered from a local grocery store, and includes seasonal locally grown fruit and veggies. It is also a great way to get connected and involved in your community. Those interested in volunteering with the program are encouraged to contact the GFB co-ordinator at (807) 345-7819. Volunteers help sort and pack produce, coordinate host sites, help deliver to neighbourhood sites and contribute recipes and cooking tips to the newsletter. We rely on public funding and donations to support the program. Those who would like to make a donation to the program are welcome to do so. For more information on donations please visit Donate.

 

 

Art of Resistance Conference

a gathering by and for women who have survived sexual violence

Inspired by the creative process and digital storytelling of Honouring Our Stories, our two-year community-engaged arts project that brought survivors and police participants together to make art, we gather to offer dedicated space for survivors to share knowledge and skills, celebrate resilience, strengthen community, and collaborate creatively with one another.

The conference will feature a keynote presentation by Dr. Charlene Senn on Friday evening; a screening of selected digital stories from the Honouring Our Stories project with Community Story Strategies, presentations about trauma and the power of art, and hands-on art workshops on Saturday; and plenty of opportunities for sharing artwork and reflections together on Sunday.

More information on registration and on presentations and workshops here.

This project is funded by the Ontario Arts Council through the Creative Engagement Fund to Stop Sexual Violence and Harassment in Ontario.
