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)
Important Update-June 29th 2020
July Order Cycle Cancellation- Georgian Good Food Box
We have decided, in line with current and continued Public Health and Government regulations to suspend our July 2020 order and pack cycle. At this time many of our pack and order locations remain closed which considerably limits our ability to resume operations.
We sincerely regret that we will not be in operation for July, as we know many of you depend on our produce; however, we need to balance the safety and well-being of everyone.
Here is what you need to know:
- Any orders already placed/paid for, are credited to August 2020, or the next month we are operational, given the changing nature of this situation.
- We will send updates on our program operation status through the following channels:
- Email updates (sign up on our website for mailing list updates)
- Our ggfb.ca website
As always, if you have questions you can contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone, 705-445-9660.
We want to thank you for your patience and support in these challenging times. We hope we will be back to providing you with the excellent and affordable produce you know and love, very soon. In the meantime, take care and stay healthy.
