Success – produce donations now accepted at Food Banks!

In the summer the Greater Sudbury Food Policy Council wrote a letter to Public Health Sudbury and Districts urging them to re-examine their interpretation of a section of the Food Premises Regulation that was preventing the donations of fruits and vegetables from home and community gardens to Food Banks.

After much communication back and forth and after Public Health consulted with their legal team and the Ontario Ministry of Health, we received word earlier this fall that the fruits and vegetables from home and community gardens are now accepted at Food Banks and other food redistribution organizations!
