False – Eden purchases all the contents for the box from the Ontario Food Terminal, based on how many people order. 100% of the fresh food donated to Eden Food for Change is distributed through our food bank programs.
False – Eden only takes 10% to cover program costs, such as truck usage and a part-time program coordinator. In fact, when people don’t pick-up their box, the organization loses the money they spent buying the produce for it. However, the design of this program is to be self-sustaining. Although, you can make an online donation here.
False – Everyone deserves to access affordable fruits and veggies. Also, with people of all income levels using the program, there is less stigma associated for those who really need all of Eden’s services. Plus, there are people who live above the poverty line and still struggle to afford produce without this program.
Maybe False, Maybe True – You can exchange one item from our “Take an Item, Leave an Item box’. However, if there are lots of items that you do not like, and you prefer to select your produce then maybe this program is not for you.
False – People of all income levels use this program, including people who use the Food Bank and some who are rich and everyone in between. We all should eat healthy, so this serves everyone.
