100 WWCG Press Release – Tuesday, April 12, 2016
100 WWCG donate $14,100 to North End Harvest Market
The story of a local grassroots organization creating a market to offer free fresh fruits and vegetables to low income individuals and families in order to meet their healthy food needs touched the hearts of 100 Women Who Care Guelph. The North End Harvest Market, a part of the Guelph Neighbourhood Support Coalition here in Guelph, was the recipient of a $14,100 donation from 100 WWCG.
The goal of the Market is not only to help improve the diets of their clientele by providing healthy food alternatives, but also to feed their souls by creating a welcoming community where they are treated with dignity. The volunteer run organization provides a fun, family centred experience by offering entertainment for the children while shopping at the Market. There are 150 people per week served by the Market, which is supported by donations of food from local farmers, or funds from groups such as 100 WWCG, who have whole heartedly embraced the concept of investing in our local community by supporting such groups as the North End Harvest Market.
