Reaching Home Nutrition PROGRAM

HOME / Our Programs

Bi-weekly nutrition box program, run on Tuesdays, year round, to provide to low income seniors facing barriers (transportation, medical or physical) to accessing the Good Food Bank Program. Nutrition boxes are built (to the best of our ability) on the dietary needs or dietary requirements of the program participant. 

 Access to the program requires the completion of a simple application form. This will be sent in to the Food Access coordinators who will then add participants to the program if there is space available. Applications can be submitted by external agencies on behalf of the individuals (Interior health, Nelson CARES, Nelson Community Services, Nelson Seniors Services Society…etc.) 

Delivery to program participants is done by Nelson Community Food Centre volunteers. Due to restrictions with volunteer capacity, deliveries are currently to individuals in the City of Nelson, north to Balfour, and west to the Slocan Junction.
