In spring 2020, Public Health Sudbury & District informed our community gardens that due to recent provincial legislative changes, we were not able to donate food from the gardens to organizations like the Food Bank in Greater Sudbury. The Greater Sudbury Food Policy Council worked with Public Health over the summer to look at this issue, and Public Health informed us on October 9, 2020 that "whole intact (not processed) fruits and vegetables from private and community gardens may be donated to inspected food premises under the current provincial and federal legislative framework, provided that these fresh fruits and vegetables were not grown or harvested for commercial purposes." A huge thank you to the Greater Sudbury Food Policy Council and Public Health Sudbury & District for working on making our community more food secure!
