The Bow Valley Good Food Box (GFB) is a package of fresh produce available to residents of the Bow Valley.

The GFB is offered monthly across the Bow Valley, and bimonthly in Canmore. The selection of items varies based on seasonal availability and are sourced-locally and/or organic when possible. The boxes are packaged and delivered to a central location for pick-up in each community.
