The Bow Valley Good Food Box (GFB) is a monthly assortment of fresh produce that focuses on packing 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. Please note there are no choices/replacement items.
The regular price of the 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 whether or not due to COVID-19. These subsidies are provided by a grant from the Rotary Club of Canmore & the Bow Valley Christmas Spirit Campaign.
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.
