Packing food boxes


Heather Latter

Volunteers helped pack food boxes Wednesday morning for the “Healthy Living” food box program, which now has been running in Fort Frances for five years—and still going strong. In those five years, a total of 27,344 boxes have been prepared, averaging 5,469 food boxes a year. The program is provided through a partnership between the Sunset Country Métis, Gizhewaadiziwin Health Access Centre, Northwestern Health Unit, Valley Diabetes Education Centre, and all the dedicated volunteers.
