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 is a program under the Community Kitchen Program of Calgary whereby we purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at a very low cost from growers and distributors in Calgary.  The Good Food Box is a hand-up program as opposed to a hand-out.  We offer all Calgarians and surrounding areas sustainable access to nutritious food to ensure that everyone has the ability to afford fresh produce so no one has to go hungry.  The boxes are put together and delivered by dedicated volunteers who along with The Community Kitchen Program desire to see individuals and families accessing affordable nutritious food.

 

Box Options:

Small Box:  $25, 20-25 lbs of fruits and vegetables

Medium Box:  $30, 30-35 lbs of fruits and vegetables

Large Box:  $35, 40-45 lbs of fruits and vegetables

 

PLEASE NOTE: These weights are just an approximate.  Weights will vary depending on produce size and density.
