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.
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 are actively planning for our July order and pack cycle and we are so excited! Of course, we hope our plans don’t change, but we can’t be sure. We will communicate any changes via our mailing list, social media and website.
