CHRISTMAS BOX STORY

WHAT'S IN A CHRISTMAS BOX?

Christmas Box is a food box that caters to a family of 4-6, helping supplement breakfast, lunch and dinner meals over a week.

Clestina sums it up; “Some people may think it’s just a box of goodies but for a family like mine, it’s such a treat…an amazing thing to do just before Christmas”
