Bow Valley Good Food Box

The Bow Valley Good Food Box (GFB) is an assortment of fresh produce that packs in as much nutritious food as it can, while sourcing local, seasonal, and organic when possible. The content of the Box varies each month based on seasonal availability and pricing. Note that this bulk ordering power means there are no choices/replacement items.

The price of the regular Bow Valley Good Food Box is $30, taxes included. This is open to anyone in the Bow Valley. A partially subsidized option of $25 is currently offered to people who self-identify with a lower-income (learn more)We also offer a No Cook Box option for $15 – Everything in this box can be eaten raw! Designed for those who have limited access to kitchen space, the assortment of 7-9 different healthy fruits and veggies requires no cooking and minimal prep.
