Good Food Box

11 Aug

Here’s an idea – if you are looking for local, good fruit and veggies for affordable prices from a great organization working for good good for all people!

Chep’s Good Food Box!

“ The Good Food Box is an alternative food distribution system that provides a variety of top-quality, fresh, nutritious foods at an affordable price. Individual families, as part of neighbourhood based groups each with a volunteer coordinator, pay for and order food boxes ahead of time. The CHEP program worker purchases foods in bulk from local producers and from wholesalers and volunteers and staff pack the boxes, which are then delivered to the neighbourhood depots. This program enables families to access nutritious fresh food that looks, smells and tastes delicious. The box contains recipes and information about food and the food system. The program is the second largest in Canada packing up to 2000 boxes a month.”
