Every other Wednesday I look forward to picking up my Good Food Box. The program, offered by FoodShare Toronto, provides a variety of food boxes including Small or Large regular, Organic, Wellness and Fruit Boxes. This incredibly successful program, which began in 1994, has seen tremendous growth and has helped thousands of Toronto families bring fresh, healthy food into their homes.
The way it works is pretty simple, you order your Good Food Box (see the brochure and links), pick it up every two weeks from your neighbourhood pick up location, take it home, open it up and enjoy the delicious delights. Certain items are consistent, and others are a surprise. My box always has a mix of fruits and veggies, there are almost always onions, potatoes, carrots, apples and some sort of leafy green in addition to a few other treats like kale, beets, celery, oranges, and dates.
And that’s why I love my Good Food Box. Follow the links in this blog and learn to love one of your own.
