To Unite All People On a World Scale - Peace Environment Health Empowerment
Hamilton’s Good Food Box Network offers nutritious fruits and vegetables at an affordable price making healthy food accessible to everybody. The program includes two options: the original Good Food Box and the new Hamilton Eat Local box, which is geared to workplaces and provides food sourced from local and Ontario farmers is being tested at pilot sites in our city.
The basic box is only 15.00 and includes roughly 11 nutritionally diverse items worth 25.00 or more. Because we work directly with a local wholesaler, Market Fresh Produce, the food is shipped out the day it is delivered, to maximize freshness!
The Good Food Box packing sessions now exceeds 400 in one month. With new distribution sites opening up across Hamilton every month, the program is scaling up and will grow even more since it is becoming convenient to pick up your box in most parts of the city.
Our central distribution site is located at a space provided by the Hughson Street Baptist Church in the North End. Here, a small army of eager volunteers works feverishly to sort, divide and deliver the month’s produce. This is no simple task when you're working with a mountain a delicate fresh food! The Good Food Boxes are then delivered to each local distribution site where they are picked up by everyone who placed an order.
