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

While our peak summer growing season may be fading, take heart. You can continue to enjoy garden-fresh fruit and vegetables from The Good Food Box. Your down-to-earth carrots, potatoes and onions are always rounded out with a wonderful variety of fruits and seasonal produce. Think watermelon, strawberries, oranges and cantaloupe …to name just a few.

In short, The Good Food Box is always brimming with flavour, nutrition and potential. The Good Food Box buys directly from farmers and wholesale clubs. The food is bought in bulk, with Good Food Box volunteers dividing the produce into portions to create the food boxes. The Good Food Box consistently offers an excellent variety of produce at a very reasonable price.

The purpose of the Good Food Box program is to support our communities through healthy nutrition. The program is open to everyone. Orders/payment are accepted twice a month, following the worship service. Orders and payment can also be made at the church office prior to the second order date, Monday to Friday, 9:30-3 PM. The upcoming order dates are as follows. Cash payment is due at the time of ordering.
