Business Information:
The HAMILTON GOOD FOOD BOX Network was created by Hamilton Eat Local, which is a project of Environment Hamilton. The Good Food Box project was created in cooperation with a wide range of community partners and with funding from the Healthy Communities Fund, the Hamilton Community Foundation and numerous donors, supporters and volunteers! The Good Food Box is a non-profit fresh fruit and vegetable distribution program. It makes healthy fresh food affordable and accessible to everyone. For only $15 our program participants receive a box of fresh quality produce worth $25 or more. We buy food at wholesale prices, with a preference for Ontario farmers. The Hamilton Good Food Box Network delivers directly to various locations all over Hamilton. We understand that with busy schedules convenience is key so we’ve set up hubs across the city. Pick-ups at our community sites take place the third and fourth Wednesdays of every month. This means that we require large quantities of fresh produce to be delivered to our packing site twice each month on the morning of each of our packing/delivery days.

Additional partnership details

We are looking for farms that will be able to provide fresh fruits and vegetables in season for our affordable food program. Although most of the box contents will be delivered to us by our wholesaler, each month we seek out one fresh produce item that we purchase directly from the grower. We're looking for more growers, and working on developing a specialized all-Ontario food box program that we would like to start sometime in 2013. Please contact us if you'd like to be part of that program or are looking for more information. Call 905-549-0900 to reach Environment Hamilton and ask for Karen.

Our Mission
