Good Food Box Program
Gateway's Good Food Box program is a not-for-profit program where anyone in the community can buy fruit and vegetables at a low cost. This promotes healthy eating in the Niagara Region.
What is The Good Food Box?
The Good Food Box is a volunteer not for profit, produce buying cooperative to help everyone to include fresh fruits and vegetable in their meals.
The low cost of the Good Food Box is made possible because of group buying.
How does it work?
Good Food Box participants can pool money together which allows them to purchase items at wholesale and the savings goes right back in their own pocket.
Volunteers work together packing boxes and running the program – this is also a major source in reducing the cost of the box.
The selection of produce in the box changes according to season and produce is purchased locally whenever possible.
