Community Members at Xatśūll were able to pick up a vegetable box on November 26.
The funding for the boxes came from Social Development although the Health Department took care of the particulars. Health also provided a box of disposable masks and a bottle of hand sanitizer as well as masks donated by Gibraltar Mine, says Health Manager Rae-Lyn Betts.
“They always appreciate when they get help with fresh veggies for their homes and they were grateful for some more masks and hand sanitizer”
The boxes had potatoes, carrots, onions, celery and garlic.
A reminder goes out to Urban Members that the NStQ Off Reserve COVID Food Supplement program is still available (email firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or outreachliaison_williams firstname.lastname@example.org depending on your location to apply).
