The "Community Harvest Ontario in the Greenbelt" project increases access to fresh fruit and vegetables for families/people that use food banks by engaging the Greenbelt farm community and urban volunteers. An innovative network of farmers and volunteers work together to grow and glean fresh, nutritious produce that is then distributed to vulnerable populations through Ontario food banks. The Ontario Association of Food Banks (OFAB) recognizes the Greenbelt as a near urban source of fresh foods.
