Community Food Box

Community Food Box Program

When the COVID-19 pandemic began, one of our first concerns was about food supply and access for the community - especially for those who already experience barriers. We know how crises can impact the availability and cost of food, not to mention compounding per-existing barriers to food access. So, we put our heads together with On The Move Organics and envisioned The Community Food Box Project - a model to deliver boxes of fresh healthy produce to families who need it.

In the first year of the project (March 2020-March 2021), our partnership delivered a total of 1345 Community Food Project Boxes to provide enough fresh produce for 21,520 meals for Londoners. While this started out as a temporary program to help combat pandemic-related food insecurity, as of April 1, 2021 we’ve decided to run this as an ongoing project funded through the On The Move Organics 1% For The Community donations along with support from the LIFE*SPIN community of donors.  Since March 2021, 1% of all On The Move Organics' sales are used to fund this project, and a box is donated on behalf of every customer's 60th order.

This year the London Food Bank committed their support of the program for the next 3 years, to enable us to build a community of support for the program, to keep feeding folks who are in need, in London.  This program also helps us to identify where extra supports are needed.  Our nursing team has done wellness checks with both seniors and expectant moms and delivered additional supports to those needing it most. There are still many families with limited mobility and limited financial means who need this support. 

Thank you for helping us help those in need.
