Looking for a way to save money but still eat well? The Good Food Box is a non-profit program for people who want to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at a lower cost. The program is open to EVERYONE.
High quality fruits and vegetables are bought in bulk at wholesale prices and the savings are passed on to you. We do the shopping for you.
Eating a diet high in fruits and vegetables is important for health and well-being as fruits and vegetables have been shown to prevent many types of illness.
The Good Food Box is a great way to try new fruits and vegetables while still getting your favourites, learn more about food preparation through the newsletter, and support local farmers.
Family Box: $17.00
(suitable for 4-5 people)
Single Box: $12.00
(suitable for 1-2 people)
What’s in a Good Food Box?
Every month the boxes are filled with fresh produce grown as locally as possible. With each delivery, the selection of fruits and vegetables in the box changes.
Each box will contain staple items such as potatoes, carrots, onions and apples most often. We choose the other items according to seasonal availability and price. An example Good Food Box might include these fresh items:
- Sweet Potatoes
- Romaine Lettuce
