York Region Emergency Food Resources During COVID-19
YRFN’s Response to COVID-19
At York Region Food Network, health is top of mind in everything that we do.
In response to COVID-19, YRFN will be focusing on our food access programs and shifting our resources away from community programming over the next few months.
Here’s what you can expect at YRFN: As of Tuesday, March 17 from 9:30am – 10:30am, our drop-in breakfast will no longer serve seated meals. Breakfast will be available for takeaway. York Region Food Networks knows that this is a hard time for many. If you need information about immediate food assistance, please reach out to us at 905-841-3101 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
All other YRFN workshops, events and classes are postponed until further notice. This includes Community Cooks and other workshops.
Though we won’t be seeing you in person over the next few months, follow us on social media. YRFN staff will be sharing with you all our favourite recipes and seed starting tips for you to try at home.
Wishing everyone a healthy few months.
Gift a Box!
So many of you have asked to gift Good Food Boxes to others in the community… so, we’ve set up an initiative to allow just that!
‘Gift a Box’ gives you the opportunity to purchase Good Food Boxes for members of the community facing heightened food insecurity. Far too many households in York Region are struggling with inadequate food access. ‘Gift a Box’ helps to get healthy, fresh produce onto tables across York Region.
