Good Food Box at the TGCA

The Good Food Box makes top-quality, fresh food available in a way that does not stigmatize people, fosters community development and promotes healthy eating.

 

The program is coordinated by the Community Kitchen Program of Calgary. 

 

Good Food Boxes include produce only, and are chock-full of seasonal vegetables and fruits, so you can expect quite a different box in January than you might get in June.  

 

You may want to make a meal plan ahead of receiving your Good Food box. It’s an exceptional value but it is a lot of perishable food. To give you an idea of how much food you’ll get, the “large box” usually comes in a banana box and often also includes an additional bag of potatoes. (Pictured on this page)

Please note: Community Kitchen Program of Calgary doesn’t accommodate special orders and the content of the boxes is not optional. Please keep this in mind if you have allergies, as your box may contain a wide variety of produce.

The TGCA is now facilitating payments directly to the The Good Food Box. You can purchase your box using VISA, Mastercard or Interac Online (Royal or TD banks only) on this page, or you can send the TGCA an e-transfer. 

The October 12 deadline has now passed. If you ordered on or before October 12, please come to the centre to pickup your box on October 21.

You can now order the Good Food Boxes for the November 25 pickup until November 16, 3:30 pm. 

Pickup time is 11 am – 4 pm. You will receive an order confirmation to your chosen email. Please have this order number with you to pick up your order. 

Pick up procedure: The Good Food Boxes will be available in the Old Lobby on designated pick up days. It’s located north of the entrance on the east side of the building-please note the signage above the door. Tell the attendant what your order number is and they will return with your box.
