GOOD FOOD BOX
The Nourish and Develop Foundation operates a Good Food Box program that provides access to fresh fruits and vegetables year-round for our community. The Good Food Box was started to link field and table and promoting local food first consumption. Our goal was to increase the income of farmers while making affordable produce more accessible to community members.
We purchase only the highest quality produce for our Good Food Boxes – sourced exclusively from local farms and shops. Our Good Food Box contains about 10 items of fresh vegetables and fruits and is available once a month to Brock and surrounding area residents. Contents change monthly depending on seasonal availability. Please consider sponsoring a box for those in our community who are nutritionally vulnerable.
$18.00 per box. You can order a basket for yourself and/or sponsor one for a family in need. Sponsor 2 or more baskets ($36) in one month and qualify for a tax receipt!
In collaboration with Ontario Works (Durham Social Services), 20 boxes per month are sponsored for families on the Ontario Works program.
Call 705 432 2444 to place your order and choose an appointment date and time for contactless pickup. Pick-up your Good Food Box at 16 York st. Cannington at either Door A or Door B.
