York Region Food Network’s Good Food Box program offers fresh fruits and vegetables at a fraction of the retail cost. YRFN works with local farmers and suppliers to provide Good Food Boxes twice a month. The Good Food Box is available on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month. Orders and payment are due one week prior to each pickup date. Pick-up is available in Aurora, Keswick and partner locations across York Region 

How this program works

We work with local suppliers and farmers to purchase good quality produce at a wholesale price and then we pass the wholesale price along to you.  

York Region Food Network’s Good Food Box program is open to everyone. 

As much as possible, fruits and vegetables offered in the Good Food Box are grown in York Region or Ontario. Yet at times (winter months), we will have produce from farther abroad just so we can offer some variety. 

The Good Food Box is available for pick-up on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month. The contents of each box are different and will change based on seasonal availability. Each Good Food Box contains 6-8 types of fruits and vegetables and the boxes are packed in Aurora by YRFN staff and a team of volunteers.  

Pick-up is available in Aurora and at partners locations throughout York Region.  

Good Food Box orders can be placed online or in-person with a York Region Food Network staff. When ordering, please indicate which location you will pick up your order from– Aurora or Markham.
