CAN: New North Greenhouse teams up with Harvest Algoma

With rising food costs, food security is top of mind for so many local families. This spring, New North Greenhouses is excited to bring a new promotion. New North Greenhouses is hosting a fundraiser known as “Baskets for Full Bellies” to benefit the United Way Sault Ste. Marie & Algoma District’s Harvest Algoma Food Resource Centre. The funds raised will be used to help fill the bellies of local people in need.

United Way’s Harvest Algoma is a food resource center that supports over 60 local and Algoma district social service agencies, programs, organizations, and community groups in accessing food for their clients. One of the ways they do this is by supplying high-quality, nutritionally dense meals, weekly to shelters such as Pauline’s Place, The Verdi Men’s Shelter, and organizations such as Salvation Army and The Indian Friendship Center. During the busiest weeks they produce upwards of 1900 individual meals on top of food accessible in the warehouse. About 70% of the food used comes from donations, food rescue and their own greenhouse (during operating season). When food is purchased, they do their best of buy from local farmers.

On average United Way’s Harvest Algoma supplies between 8 to 14 thousand pounds of food to about 8 thousand individuals and families a month through various programs.
