Group Admins

Covid-19 has caused disruptions in income and job security for many people. Providing food for one's family is integral to mental and physical well-being. Working with school staff, families who may be experiencing food insecurity are provided a box of nutritious food from our local Farmer's market.

The Group’s Purpose

Everyone has the right to food. The Shuswap Box provides vulnerable people access to fresh and nutritious food, while supporting our small-scale farmers and food producers. It also provides education on how to cook local foods and eat more seasonally.

How to Help

You can help by donating money to support purchase of a box for a vulnerable family.
