Good Food Box

A group-buying program that helps bring affordable fresh fruits and vegetables to our community. Please read below to learn how we're adapting the program during the pandemic.

The Good Food Box program is making some changes! Please check back for the latest information which will be available December 23rd. 

The Good Food Box is available to people who have been adversely impacted by COVID-19, or are immune-compromised, or in isolation, or unable to access family or other supports, or have a low income (please see our definition of low income in the graph to the right).

Foodshare is able to offer a low-cost and no-cost option. Ordering is open from Thursday through Wednesday at 4 pm for a Good Food Box the following week.

Have questions? Please email gfb@nanaimofoodshare.ca.

If you would like to place an order over the phone, please call 778-744-3250

*Currently ordering for the Thursday December 17th Good Food Box*

Reminder, the last two Good Food Boxes of 2020 are December 10th and 17th! Orders will open December 23rd for the first Good Food Box of 2021 on January 7th.

Low-cost Option

Foodshare is able to use bulk-buying to provide low-cost boxes of fruits and vegetables to the community for $10.

No-cost Option

If $10 is a barrier for you to have a box, you can request a no-cost box through our Gift of Healthy Eating program.
