The Good Food Box Program, (GFB) is a program under the Community Kitchen Program of Calgary whereby anyone can purchase boxes of fresh fruits and vegetables at an affordable price. The Good Food Box Program offers a Hands Up approach as opposed to a Hands-Out. We offer all Calgarians and those in the surrounding areas, sustainable access to nutritious boxes of fruits and vegetables, to ensure that no one has to go hungry. The boxes are assembled by dedicated volunteers, who along with The Community Kitchen desire to see individuals and families accessing nutritious fruits and vegetables at an affordable price.
