BIG HEART FOOD BOX & DONATIONS

The Big Heart Food Box

A food program that is good for everyone

The Big Heart Food Box program is organized by Creemore volunteers. The goal is to provide everyone in our community contact-free access to high quality food while supporting Ontario’s farmers and producers. We also want to provide a place for our community to come together to both give and receive help to ensure food security and bolster local businesses in North Mulmur and the Creemore Area. 

Here are the ways you can participate:

BUY

An option for people who enjoy fresh, local food. 

Purchase your foodbox via 100 KM foods.

Ordering is available online starting Fridays at noon and closing Sundays at midnight. Be sure to check out the YUMMY ADD ONS SECTION. Delivery occurs Wednesdays and food is to be picked up at St. Luke’s Anglican Church between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.  Food can also be delivered right to your door. This is a free service thanks to our volunteers, but donations are gratefully accepted and all proceeds will be used to provide food and services to neighbours in need.

Our thanks to St. Luke’s and Clearview Community Church for working with our big hearted volunteers by providing their charitable administration of donations, as well as their compassion and experience in providing aid and comfort in the community. Thanks also to Gillian Flies at The New Farm for connecting us with 100 KM Foods and to Natalie de Ruiter for designing our logo and making our sign. Our appreciation goes to Creemore 100 Mile Store, Sandra Lackie, Donna Baylis, Jenn Hubbs and all those who participated in our pilot project for their input, and most of all to Barbara Mann and Tyler Brownfield for making sure everyone gets their food box as they should.
