Ottawa GOOD FOOD BOX

The Ottawa Good Food Box is a nonprofit community-based program bringing neighbours together to buy a variety of delicious and nutritious fresh fruits and vegetables at wholesale prices. Ashley Lima is the site coordinator for HERON PARK and will be responsible for organizing monthly orders and pick up times for the Good Food Boxes in our area.

Here’s how the GFB program works:

The Ottawa Good Food Box works like a large buying club. Customers must order and pay for their boxes ahead of time.

Order and payment are due to the Site Coordinator (me) by the date listed below. This allows me time to get the group order and payment together to meet The Ottawa Good Food Box Club’s deadlines.

The Ottawa Good Food Box Club cannot accommodate changes to orders, because everything is pre-bought to match the orders.

See http://www.centretownchc.org/gfb/?page_id=10&lang=en for more information.

How to place your orders and/or payment:

Email (ashleysarahlima@yahoo.ca) or phone (613-729-0024) me to place your order and arrange to drop off your payment before the order deadline.

When to phone: between 10am and 8pm (leave a message if I’m not there, I’ll call you back!)

Box pick-up:

Please check your answering machine (or call me) before coming to pick up your box. Occasionally the drivers are behind schedule and the delivery may be delayed. I wouldn’t want you to have to make two trips.

The boxes are delivered on the third Wednesday of each month.

Customer pick-up is between 4 and 7pm

The boxes are the property of the Ottawa Good Food Club and cannot leave the site coordinators site.

Bring your own bags to carry home your produce.

We would love to hear your feedback. If you have any recipe or community information to share in our newsletter please phone 233-4443 ext. 2203.
