Basinview Drive Community School

Nourish Your Roots

Hello Basinview Families

Basinview's Nourish Your Roots Veggie Box Fundraiser program has started!  The program has changed slightly as the NYR farm-to-families fundraiser has moved online and veggie boxes will now be distributed through community partners. Buying a box of fresh, local produce is available through the new Nourish Your Roots online store.  Visit the site, select your pick-up location and date, and pay for your order online.

This year, 116 participating schools will receive much needed funds for their school healthy eating programs through Nourish Your Roots.  Dedicated farm partners have been working hard to prepare for deliveries starting on September 28th and running through to the end of October.  Boxes are $35 and will have a variety of fresh, local produce.  Boxes will be available for pick up at 30 community sites around the province.  The 2 pick up locations in Bedford are Noggins Sante Centre and the parking lot at Staples in Bedford Commons.

The funds raised will be used to support Basinview's healthy eating initiatives (breakfast program, school garden, and cooking activities) through your purchase of a NYR veggie box.  Please visit https://www.nourishns.ca/nourish-your-roots-1  for more information and details on placing an order for a veggie box.

Thank-you for your support
