Plan B Newsletter July 14/2021

Now that summer is in full swing and folks are able to get out and about it’s going to get really busy for all of us. Here’s hoping for a great summer! 

This will be our very last Good Food Box. The gardens are starting to produce and the grocery stores are safe to go back to. We will be turning our attention to other Plan B ventures. Stay tuned! If you only got the newsletter through your good food box please let us know how we can get one to you. A big round of appreciation to the Perth and District Community Foundation who made the subsidies possible.

To break down this year’s efforts with the Good Food Box we have brought some numbers together.

The first chart shows how many boxes of which size were sold in total. The second chart shows how many of those were subsidized either in full ($25, $20, or $15) or partially.
