Symons Valley Good Food Box

January 24 is order deadline for next Good Food Box 

Symons Valley United Church (SVUC) is pleased to offer The Good Food Box program.

Available to everyone in Calgary and surrounding areas, each Good Food Box provides a variety of affordably priced fruits and vegetables based on seasonal availability. Produce is purchased in bulk directly from growers and distributors. There are no “mark-ups,” meaning discounts are passed on directly to Good Food Box clients.
