The Good Baby Box (GBB) Program has been available in Hastings County since 1999, with funding from Hastings County and United Way. Since its’ inception, hundreds of families have accessed the program each year to help stretch their food dollars, reduce food costs and meet the food needs of their infants and toddlers.
With new funding from United Way of Quinte, the Community Development Council of Quinte is pleased to announce that the GBB Program is now expanding into Prince Edward County!
