Jane recently fled to Canada to escape violence. She had to leave all her belongings behind and start again in a place where she had no friends or family, trying to survive on Ontario Works benefits. She came to a Good Food Box pack day with a group of volunteers and found it was a great place to make friends and learn new skills. She started coming every month for both packing and wash day, and was able to afford to order a Good Food Box regularly with her volunteer discount. Like most of our volunteers, she believes she eats a healthier diet since getting involved. Soon, she convinced her new partner, who was almost housebound by anxiety, to come to GFB packing day. He has been attending ever since. Jane used the GFB program as an employment reference and has since found part time employment as a result.
