Thanksgiving Meal Box

Updated: Sep 27, 2022

Hello again friends of Fresh Food Weekly,

Today we are happy to announce that for the month of October, we will be delivering two meal boxes to 75 families in need, for a total of 150 meal boxes. Our first October delivery day will be the Thanksgiving meal box and we'll be delivering it to recipients on Thursday, October 5, 2022.

We're very excited to be able to offer each recipient their choice of either a turkey or ham (sizes depend on the number of people in the recipient's household), thanks to both Joe's No Frills and Zehrs off Bryne Drive in Barrie.

New Donor

We also have a new donor this month with Karen Macintosh, who owns both the Canadian Toggle Fashion House, as well as Ritchies Wings & Salads. Karen will be putting together a lovely women's care package for each of the Thanksgiving meal boxes going to a household with at least one lady. She'll also be doing a food donation for the October 19th meal boxes - more information on this later.

Finally, I would like to give a big thank you to all the food businesses and farmers who are contributing their goods to these meal boxes. I would also like to thank all of our donors who have sponsored a low-income family living in Barrie. Without you guys, none of this would be possible. Thank you for your generosity and kindness - all 75 families wouldn't be getting a Thanksgiving dinner without your support.
