Late last school year, Lester B Pearson High School asked the city to be a North East Calgary distribution point (Hub) for the Calgary Good Food Box.
This year we have been granted that privilege. The Good Food Box is a program under the Community Kitchen Program of Calgary whereby you can purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at amazing costs.. The more people that join in the program the greater our buying power becomes. They offer ALL Calgarians access to nutritious food to ensure no one goes hungry. The Fruit and Vegetable boxes are put together and delivered to your closest location (Hub) once a month.
As the Pearson Hub continues to grow, we invite the community, your staff and students to participate and join us using program.
The order date for this month is coming up very fast February 27 with pick up of your good food box Friday afterschool March 9. From Lester B Pearson High school. Payment needs to be received by March 7. If you are interested or would like more information please email Hsdeschner@cbe.ab.ca
