Fresh from the Farm (Fall)

First SAC fundraiser supports local farmers, our families, the food bank and our school

It’s harvest time — and what better way to embrace the natural bounty of the season than by participating in this year’s Fresh from the Farm fundraiser.

Last year École John English Junior Middle School raised close to $2,000 to help fund meaningful programs such as skating and Scientists in the School.  We also donated 95 bundles of fresh fruits and vegetables to our local food bank.  Way to go John English!

Get involved this year by ordering fresh vegetables or apples for your family or the Daily Bread Food Bank.  You have a choice of:

  • Bundle A @ $14.00: 5 lb potatoes, 3 lb carrots, 3 lb yellow onions, 3 lb sweet from local Ontario farmers
  • Bundle B @ $15.00: 8 lb Empire apples from local Ontario farmers

Orders are due Wednesday, October 10. Order pick up will be in early November.  Notification of the exact delivery date will be sent to all families approximately 10 days prior to delivery.

You can also get involved by volunteering to assist with order pick up. Volunteers will be needed both before school and after school, when orders arrive in early November.  Send an email to sacinfo@johnenglish.ca for more information on volunteer positions or questions about the Fresh from the Farm fundraiser.
