Are you looking to incorporate more fresh fruits and vegetables into your diet, but find the cost of produce prohibitive? Check out the Good Food Box! You can pick up a week’s worth of fruit and vegetables on-campus, twice a month – simply pre-order, and come get them the next week.
Who? The Good Food Box is a non-profit food distribution system run by Food Share Toronto, an organization with the goal of improving access to good, healthy food in the GTA.
What? Food Share work directly with farmers to buy healthy fruit and vegetables at their fresh peak and at a lower cost than you would see at the grocery store. Volunteers then pack and deliver the boxes to drop-off locations for you to pick up.
When? Every other week.
Where? Pre-order your box at the main office in the Student Centre at Progress, and pick up your box from the West Lounge in the Student Centre at Progress Campus.
Why? The Good Food Box is not only cheaper than buying the same produce from the supermarket, but it’s also convenient. You don’t have to worry about choosing what’s fresh, on sale, and available. And you don’t have to spend time wandering the produce aisles at the store – the Good Food Box does it for you!
