The Good Food Box Program, (GFB) is a great resource made available through the work of the Community Kitchen Program of Calgary. The program is available to all Albertans (it is not income dependent), and offers sustainable access to nutritious boxes of fruits and vegetables at an affordable price. The produce is sourced locally from farms and Calgary businesses, and assembled by dedicated volunteers.
Deliveries can be picked up from St. James Church between 2:30pm and 5:30 pm on the appropriate day. When you pickup your Good Food Box on Depot dates you are encouraged to have a mask, practice safe distance and follow the direction of the Depot Attenders. We will assist to get the box you select to your vehicle.
