What is the Good Food Box?
The Good Food Box Program offers fresh, healthy, nutritious fruits and vegetables at a fraction of the retail cost. The boxes are available monthly, are packed in Belleville and shipped to Depots throughout Hastings & Prince Edward Counties.
How do I Participate?
You would come into our office or the Depot nearest you by the first Wednesday of the month, place your order and pay (cash or debit only, contact your nearest depot to inquire about payment options). You would pick up your box on the third Wednesday of the month.
