The Good Food Box Mission
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
*These weights are just an approximate. Weights will vary depending on produce size and density.
How The Good Food Box Works
The boxes are delivered once a month to the Church. Orders are submitted on a Tuesday and the boxes arrive the following Wednesday. Simply call or email the church office or stop by to place your order. Orders may be paid in cash or by e-transfer.
