The Good Food Box is a non-profit alternative fruit and vegetable distribution system. Boxes are available for pick-up or delivery every second Wednesday. We purchase the highest quality produce and ensure variety, freshness and affordability. We prioritize locally grown, unsprayed produce with a focus on seasonal fruits and vegetables.

Good Food Box is brought to you by your community, lovingly packed and delivered by volunteer community members and is meeting shared goals for sustainability, food security, social justice and health.

The Brighter Futures Program provides a brighter future for the community in many different ways:

  • Pauquachin Day in the summer
  • Christmas Community Dinner
  • Haircuts
  • Good Food Box
