Buying a Good Food Box gives you a low cost way to get fresh produce delivered to your neighbourhood or building. Produce is ordered from a local grocery store, and includes seasonal, locally grown fruits and vegetables. It is also a great way to get connected and involved in your community.
Due to our current limitations during the COVID-19 pandemic, there is currently only ONE size of box for $22 (previously we offered two sizes for individuals and families). Boxes have slightly less variety than you may be used to, as we are only ordering produce in full portion sizes (i.e. a full bag of potatoes, a full bag of apples etc.). There are typically 7-9 different items per box. There are still feature items and a newsletter with easy healthy recipes in every box.
No one needs to provide proof of income to sign up. Participants pay for the Good Food Box by the first Wednesday of each month at a neighbourhood host site. The boxes are dropped off at the host site on either the second or third Wednesday each month.
