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 $15!!
(There is a small additional charge for online orders)

March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month (CCAM)! To recognize this important month, the Simcoe Muskoka Regional Cancer Program (SMRCP) is collaborating with several community partners to host a number of educational events in the North Simcoe Muskoka area. The regional campaign—known as “Colour Your Plate”—integrates topics of food, nutrition, and healthy lifestyle choices to facilitate discussion about colorectal cancer prevention and screening. “Colour Your Plate” will educate community members on effective dietary strategies for preventing colon cancer, such as “colouring your plate” with many different fruits and vegetables. The campaign will also encourage eligible individuals to get screened using a take-home FOBT kit. Colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable, and “Colour Your Plate” aims to spread awareness of this fact!
Wellness Fair – The SMRCP will be attending the upcoming Wellness Fair hosted by Loblaws in Collingwood. Stop by to learn more about colorectal, cervical and breast screening!
