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)

Golden Ticket Contest in November!

Its Back! Have you got the Golden Ticket?
To celebrate packing over 75 000 bags this month, and our 18 years in operation (wow!) we are hosting a giveaway! Three lucky customers will find a Golden Ticket in their bags in November. If you find the Golden Ticket you have won a free bag for December!

Volunteers Needed- Wasaga and Colllingwood

We are looking for volunteers for our Wasaga Beach and Collingwood pack operations on the third Wednesday morning each month. In Wasaga Beach at the Lion’s Den Recplex Hall and in Collingwood at the Legion:

  • Volunteers should be physically fit and able to lift at least 40lbs if unloading produce.  We have other roles that do not require heavy lifting, but our need is greatest for those who can unload the produce at this time.
  • Assist with packing produce bags, unloading produce, room set up/tear down and customer pick up’s.
  • Highschool students welcome, we can sign off on volunteer hour requirement forms.

If you are interested in a volunteer position, please contact Loretta at 705-352-3555 (Wasaga) or Joan at 705-445-9660 (Collingwood) or email us at gfoodbox@gmail.com
