CBRM food program

Three community groups in C-B-R-M are teaming up to deliver groceries, meals and nutritional advice to seniors.

Funding was announced yesterday by the provincial government for an eight-week pilot project called Friendly Food Box.  The government is providing $9,400 under its Age Friendly program, which supports community groups that enhance the social and economic contributions of seniors.  The food box project was developed by the Ecology Action Centre, New Dawn Meals on Wheels and the Pan-Cape Breton Food Hub.
