Effective July 2017, pick-up day will now be the second Wednesday of the month. The deadline to order is now the first Wednesday of the month.
There will be one box size only, equivalent to the large box for $17. This is for ease of ordering, reducing workload for the supplier, and to maximize the value of the box contents. The list of box contents will be emailed by the weekend before pick-up so you can do meal planning and shopping accordingly.
Reasons for program changes
We are excited to be working with a new supplier who currently services the Georgian (Collingwood, Wasaga, Stayner, Creemore), Meaford and Orillia Good Food Boxes, which all share the same pick-up day. Due to the logistics of delivering to several municipalities in one day, Barrie is changing its pick-up day to the second Wednesday of the month.
Thank you for your patience throughout this process, and for your continued support of the Barrie Good Food Box. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us at BarrieGoodFoodBox@gmail.com or (705) 791-2432.
Good Food Boxes are volunteer packed with fresh, high-quality, seasonal vegetables. With the box menu changing monthly, each Good Food Box presents a convenient and affordable way to eat good healthy food.
The Good Food Box can be purchased monthly for $17. Order by the first Wednesday of the month and pick up on the second Wednesday of the month.
