Good Food Box Holiday Drive - Fundraiser for Fresh Food
For the past decade, thanks to generous donations to our annual Holiday Drive, Stonegate Community HealthCentre has been able to provide Good Food Boxes to neighbourhood individuals and families dealing with food insecurity and hunger during the holidays.
This year, more than ever, we are relying on donations from businesses, partners and community residents to meet our goal of providing boxes not just during the holidays but throughout the year to those struggling to put healthy food on the table.
For our December holiday food box delivery, clients will be able to have their produce box delivered directly to their home without having to pick it up at our Health Centre, thanks to FoodShare. A donation of $22 buys a local family a large size Good Food Box brimming with fresh fruits and vegetables. The Good Food Box is a non profit fresh fruit and vegetable distribution system operated by FoodShare Toronto. Every Good Food Box is filled with top-quality fruits and vegetables from local farmers and the Ontario Food Terminal.
A $50 donation provides Good Food Boxes to 2 families in need.
A $100 donation provides Good Food Boxes to 5 families in need.
A $250 donation provides Good Food Boxes to 12 families in need.
A $500 donation provides Good Food Boxes to 23 families in need.
100% of donations go towards providing fresh healthy food for those in need. Charitable tax receipts are available for donations over $10. To make a donation to our relief fund, please click on the donate now link.
Donating to Stonegate CHC

Services such as the Community Food Program, Early Years Program, and Youth after-school programs depend on your kind donations.
