Mission Towards an even more supportive and inclusive community in Lanark Highlands, Ontario, Canada
Description Who is Plan B? and why do they call themselves that?
Plan B began with the Good Food Box and evolved from there. A need was seen to offer low cost fruit and vegetables in the Lanark Highlands, so in partnership with the Lions club in Smiths Falls the Good Food Box programme was initiated in the Village of Lanark. Quickly the orders became too high for transport and a new depot was established in Lanark.
It soon became apparent how wonderful getting the community together for meals would be. We had no idea if this was possible, feasible, or if anyone would come. We decided on a 3 month trial basis beginning March 2015. The dinners have been a huge success. We began to notice a trend in our efforts. If Plan A doesn’t work, which it never seems to, go to Plan B. This seems to be true when approaching the problem from any angle, so we resolved to try Plan B first. We would then proceed through the alphabet until we arrived at whatever it took to get the job done.
Plan B became a very loosely organized group of people who took on whatever interested them at the time. There are no prerequisites, and no real commitments, only a desire to be involved. We began to spread our wings a bit and become involved in issues that we felt needed to be addressed. We make no claim to be other than who we are, a grass roots community organization advocating for our community.
In June 2015 we sponsored the Perfect Lanark Contest in an effort to hear from our community what they felt needed to be done and what we could do in response to making the Highlands the perfect place to live. We are still working on that!
We are actively promoting women’s issues through a variety of mediums and methods and always exploring more innovative and relevant means.
We have begun the Jamboree programme which is an exploration of food preservation techniques combined with a distribution of free in season fruit and vegetables. This is a new programme this year and already hugely successful.
