Good Food Box Manitoulin

About the Program

The Good Food Box is a non-profit, community initiative helping individuals and families in need of assistance to put fresh produce on the table. The program offers a variety of nutritious, delicious fresh fruits and vegetables at wholesale prices. The food boxes are packed and delivered to communities across Manitoulin on the third Tuesday of every month.

 

Large Box $17

Small Box $9

Participants can expect the same high quality vegetables and fruit found at the grocery store for a lower price. The Good Food Box produce is supplied by Manitoulin Islandʼs local grocery stores.
