Good Food Box Update During COVID-19 

During COVID-19, York Region Food Network is committed to getting healthy local food on your table. One of the best ways we are able to do this is by expanding our Good Food Box program. Starting in May 2020, we will be offering our Good Food Box twice each month.
 
York Region Food Network’s Good Food Box program is open to everyone. We work with local suppliers and farmers to purchase good quality fresh produce at a wholesale price and then we pass the wholesale price along to you. This program is a great way to support local suppliers and farmers. 

What to expect from YRFN’s Good Food Boxes

  • We are expanding our Good Food Box program and our produce boxes will now be available for pickup on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month. Orders and payment are due one week prior to each pickup date. 
  • Contents of our Good Food Box will change each time. We aim to have 7-8 different types of veggies and fruit in each box.  
  • We have been informed by our supplier that produce prices are increasing. York Region Food Network feels that everyone needs a little break right now and we will be subsidizing the cost our Good Food Boxes so we do not need to raise our prices. This means that York Region Food Network will be paying our suppliers and farmers more per Good Food Box to offer more variety to you, but we will continue to charge you just $16 per box, which includes PayPal fees.   
  • These are unusual times and although we can’t typically offer Good Food Box delivery, we know that there are a lot of people right now who cannot leave their house for a variety of reasons. If you need your Good Food Box delivered, please reach out to us at 4moreinfo@yrfn.ca before ordering to discuss options.
