African Black Caribbean (ABC) Community
My family and I love the fresh provisions of bi-weekly deliveries to us by beautiful souls. Thanks so much, NACCA" - Food Security Program Member, Newmarket
I can't begin to thank for what a blessing NACCA has been to my family. Thank you so much NACCA for the fresh fruits and veggies you have been sending to us every 2 weeks. We have been struggling to keep up with our bills last 2 years. It has been really hard on us.
The Newmarket African Caribbean Canadian Association's Food Security initiative is funded by the Canadian Red Cross Society and is aimed at assisting with the needs of the ABC community as a result of COVID-19. We deliver fresh produce (thanks to the support of the York Region Food Network) and grocery gift cards to families in Newmarket, Aurora and East Gwillimbury. African, Black and Caribbean residents in need are encouraged to apply for a free bi-weekly delivery of food basket here We are not currently accepting donations of food items.
