Nourish Your Roots 2020
Nourish Nova Scotia needs your help to make the Nourish Your Roots 2020 Community Campaign a success!
Nourish Your Roots (NYR) is a farm-to-school food box fundraiser developed by Nourish Nova Scotia created to help schools and non-profit child care centres support their own healthy eating programs. The food boxes feature only local produce from participating Nova Scotia farmers and help to connect children and families to healthy, local, and sustainable food choices.
This year, purchasing a food box is easier than ever with the new online store! Boxes cost $35 for 22-25lbs of farm-fresh Nova Scotian produce. Order online now & pick up your box at 1 of 32 contactless pickup locations across Nova Scotia from September 28 – October 31!
All proceeds will continue to go to participating schools and farmers.
