HCFBDC began a more focused approach to provide fresh wholesome foods (milk, eggs, meat, fresh fruit & vegetables) as a result of the "Tracking, Assessing & Improving the Distribution of Food Aid in Rural Huron County" study which was completed in 2018. In addition to the seasonal donations of fresh produce, HCFBDC is now sourcing fruits and vegetables throughout the year. In addition to supporting our food-aid agency clients, HCFBDC operates a "Mobile Food Bank" service in 4 communities (Brussels, Huron Park, Lucknow and Vanastra) as these areas were also identified in the study as areas considered to be food deserts.
