New milkbags coming!

This is a follow-up to my previous post about the Dec 17 drop-off date at Mr McLaren’s trailer. Angela Kesthely posted a comment to it, saying there were boxes of new milkbags to be had at the CFFC warehouse, available for the return trip to Ottawa. Based on our experience with the 300,000 milkbags that ProSoya offered us in July, the boxes should weigh just under 40 lbs each and be roughly  20″ x 15″ x 10″ in size.

We have now coordinated efforts with CFFC — Mr McLaren will be bringing back 70-80 boxes to Ottawa, probably becoming available on Dec 20 — and we must clear them out of the trailer within a few days! So here’s the plan:

  • Sat 17 Dec: deadline for dropping off mats and bags at Mr McLaren’s
  • Sun 18 Dec: trailer goes down to Mississauga, with a stopover in Lindsay
  • Mon 19 Dec: trailer unloaded at CFFC warehouse; boxed milkbags loaded up for return trip
  • Tues-Thurs, 20-22 Dec: boxed milkbags MUST be picked up at Mr McLaren’s

ALL of this is totally dependent on the weather! So be prepared for adjustments.

    We will take 10 boxes if possible.
    Thanks, Danielle


    • Well … it’s first come, first served. That is, you have to go the trailer and get your boxes. Given their weight 🙂 , I’d suggest having a helper come along.

    COBOURG Helping Hands will take new bags as well.
    We are actually running low on bags. Hard to believe

    CFFC says they take the milk bags to put flour and food in. Perhaps they would like some as well.

    I would call CFFC first about the mats. We were told to put a hold on them for a few months.
