Good Food Box
The Good Food Box makes top-quality, fresh food available in a way that does not stigmatize people, fosters community development and promotes healthy eating.
What is the Good Food Box?
The Good Food Box (GFB) is a program under the Community Kitchen Program of Calgary whereby you can purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at a very low cost. The Good Food Box is a hands-up program as opposed to hands-out. We offer all Calgarians’ sustainable access to nutritious food to ensure that no one has to go hungry. The boxes are put together and delivered by dedicated volunteers who along with The Community Kitchen desire to see individuals and families accessing affordable nutritious food.
|Small Box:||$25, 20-25lbs* of fruits and vegetables|
|Medium Box:||$30, 30-35lbs* of fruits and vegetables|
|Large Box:||$35, 40-45lbs* of fruits and vegetables|
*Weights are approximate. They will vary depending on product size and density.
How The Good Food Box Works
The boxes are delivered once a month to Symons Valley UC. Orders can be placed in the narthex following service and must be submitted with payment. Each box contains the same mixture of food, though the contents change with each delivery. Orders forms will soon be available online, so please check back to download one (they must be dropped off with payment to the Symons Valley UC office in advance of the order dates.)
How Does the GFB Operate?
The GFB operates by buying fresh top quality produce directly from farmers and from wholesale clubs. The food is bought in bulk and dropped off at our warehouse. Our volunteers then divide up the produce into portions and put the Good Food Boxes together. The boxes contain the maximum produce possible in them for the price.
