Good Food Box

Morning, Pearson once again has the opportunity to offer the Good Food Box to our staff and to our students. The Good food Box is a group purchase of fresh fruits and vegetables. The more people that join in, the superior buying power we have. This is an example small box from last year, there was apples, oranges, pears, tomatoes, bananas, cucumber, mango, red peppers, cantaloupe, watermelon, bag of carrots, bag of potatoes, all for $25.00. This is an amazing opportunity. If you would like to know more or would like to order a box.

Please continue and read the document below.

Order goes in October 17

We have extended this opportunity to our student families this year, so please if you know of any families that would benefit from this please send them to Ms. Deschner in room 1101 or the Snack Shack to hear more.

The Good Food Box Mission The Good Food Box makes top-quality, fresh food available in a way that does not stigmatize people, fosters community development and promotes healthy eating.

What is the Good Food Box? The Good Food Box (GFB) is a program under the Community Kitchen Program of Calgary whereby you can purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at a very low cost. The Good Food Box is a hands-up program as opposed to hands-out. We offer all Calgarians’ sustainable access to nutritious food to ensure that no one has to go hungry. The boxes are put together and delivered by dedicated volunteers who along with The Community Kitchen desire to see individuals and families accessing affordable nutritious food.

Small Box: $25, 20-25lbs* of fruits and vegetables
Medium Box: $30, 30-35lbs* of fruits and vegetables

About WCM SheBiz

WCM’s SheBiz is a free, day-long interactive event for female students in grades 10 and 11 (accompanied by a teacher), to provide them with unique access to business leaders, business topics, and exposure to the numerous and exciting career opportunities available to women in business and STEM fields. The objective of SheBiz is to encourage more young women to pursue careers in business and educate them about the myriad of career opportunities available to them, so that they can make informed decisions about their future education choices and areas of interest. SheBiz is strategically aligned with WCM’s key objective of increasing women’s representation in leadership positions and in Canada’s corporate boardrooms. Since its launch in Toronto in 2011, WCM’s SheBiz has been met with great success and overwhelming demand and is now attended by more than 500 female students in Toronto annually. This year marks an especially exciting year as WCM’s SheBiz will once again be expanding nationally, with SheBiz events planned for Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Victoria and Montreal.

We look forward to seeing you at Calgary SheBiz 2017! If you have any further questions, please contact events@wcm.ca. The event has been offered free of charge to all attendees, thanks to the generosity our SheBiz Calgary sponsors.
