Perth District Health Unit Receives Donation to Help Families Afford Nutritious Food
The Perth District Health Unit received a $1,000 donation from the Festival Jubilee Chapter IODE, which will help it to continue providing nutrition support to young families in Perth County.
“We are very grateful for this donation,” says Pat Jarvis Winhold, Public Health Manager. “The money will be well spent to help make sure families in Perth County are better able to afford nutritious food.”
The money is used to provide milk coupons for families involved with the Healthy Babies Healthy Children program. The coupons are redeemed at participating grocers for 4 litres of bagged milk.
