Welcome to the Georgian Good Food Box Program!

The Georgian Good Food Box is a non-profit buying club that purchases fresh fruits and vegetables for distribution in Southern Georgian Bay monthly.

ORDER HERE

Because we purchase the produce wholesale, the cost and quality are far better than that which you would purchase in a traditional grocery store. In the winter months, our large box is worth about $25 retail, and you get it for $18!!

(There is a small additional charge for online orders)

We encourage all customers to be prompt in picking up their order. If you anticipate an issue with pick up, please contact us to discuss further.
