Good food box gets going in Vernon
The Good Food Box Program is a non-profit, community program that helps individuals and families get fresh produce into their meals at a low cost. For a few years now, the Vernon Campus has assisted students in need (who are referred) to have a box each month. You can also purchase a box for your own family.
The monthly cost is $15. The VSAOC (Vernon Student Association – Okanagan College) has graciously helped with this cost, but as you can imagine, this adds up over time.
We are kindly asking that anyone who wishes, can anonymously sponsor a student each month, or, make any kind of donation to the VSAOC to help defray these costs. Already for the month of September, we are helping 8 students, with more being identified as the semester continues.
We sincerely appreciate any help you can provide, and thank you in advance for doing so.
Additionally, this program is for anyone – so if you would like to purchase one (or more) Good Food Box for you/your family, please see Eric in the student office above the cafeteria.
