'Eat Fresh Chaleur' celebrates six months of ensuring citizens access to fresh produce

The Chaleur Community Inclusion Network is celebrating the success of its 'Eat Fresh Chaelur' program.

The program first kicked of six months ago as a way to ensure access to fresh produce at a regular price for the people of the region.

Since then, it has garnered more than 500 members and has distributed around 2,000 bags of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Each bag costs $15 and contains approximately $30 worth of fresh produce.

Chaleur Community Inclusion Network's July Synott says her group's goal was to have 400 members by year end and that its success is mainly due to community participation.
