What is the Good Food Box?

The Good Food Box is a community-based food distribution system that provides Saskatoon and area households with an alternative way to get top-quality, fresh produce at affordable prices. We purchase fruit and vegetables in bulk from local producers and wholesalers, then pass the savings on to you!

Anyone can participate in this program. Participants support and learn more about local farmers, get to know others in their community, enjoy a nice variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, and learn fun new recipes as well as nutritional facts from newsletters included in each box.

Every two weeks, a dedicated team of volunteers come together to pack a variety of boxes, which are then sent out to neighbourhood depots across the city for pickup.
