On the hottest day during COVID-19 The Nourish Well Community Project along with volunteers and Monika Figura Team Lead of The Youthrive Program 360 kids, came together to successfully deliver produce and gift cards to the community. Thank you to Second Harvest for accepting our request for Loblaws grocery gift cards generously provided by the Sprott Foundation to be used for emergency relief initiatives. With the generosity and help from Mike and Carla Oliverio owners of Mike's No Frills in Woodbridge we were able to receive fresh produce to be given to the families that have youth participating in the Youthrive program. We packaged 80 No frills bags filled with cucumbers, carrots, spinach, melon, red peppers, blueberries, romaine, and cherry tomatoes and delivered to Markham, Aurora, Richmond Hill, and Newmarket. Facing food insecurity during the trying times that the pandemic brought, being able to deliver a gift of hope and relief was exactly what we needed to do. The families were very grateful to receive $50 grocery gift cards along with a bag full of produce and a guide to eating healthy with recipes included. It was an emotional day on so many levels and being able to help the community made every bead of sweat worth it.
Thank you to everyone who made this possible and we look forward to more community give backs, We also look forward to bringing back after school culinary nutrition workshops to youth of 360 Kids as soon as we can.
If you would like to learn how you can help us grow our project dreams and goals we would love to hear from you Sabrina@nurishwell.com
