Good Food Box Program

The Good Food Box Program offers free, fresh produce to those in the community who struggle with food security. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to eat healthy despite financial challenges.

This initiative is a joint effort between Networks Ministries and the Dawson Creek Co-op. We appreciate the Dawson Creek Co-op who have partnered with us in this initiative since 2014! The cost of the Good Food Box Program is lower than the cost of the same products at the grocery store. Those who qualify receive a Good Food Box at no charge, thanks to the generous support of our community.

The Good Food Box Program operates on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month. Fresh produce can be picked up between 11:00 am and 2:30 pm on those days. If you are registered on the program and cannot make it to pick up your Good Food Box, please let us know so you don't lose your spot. Call Networks at 1-844-432-3663 or message us on Facebook: Networks Facebook Group

 

******Please Note: Good Food Boxes are only for those who are registered on our program. Those who are faithful at showing up each time to pick up their Good Food Box. Those who miss more than 3 times will be removed from the reserved list. Extra Good Food Boxes will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis. ******

The Good Food Box (GFB) program is set up to encourage healthy eating and offset the cost of expensive fruits and vegetables. We have partnered with the Dawson Creek Co-op to offer this valuable service to the local community.

The GFBs are available on the first and the third Thursdays of each month at a cost of $14 for a half box and $28 for a full box.

For most of us, fruits and vegetables are taken for granted. However, for many families that we serve, fresh produce is a luxury they cannot afford and they are therefore they are unable to pay for their Good Food Box.  Through our sponsorship program we are able to hand out 250+ free Good Food Boxes each month to those who are in this situation.

If you are interested in sponsoring a family or individual to receive a Good Food Box please let us know. The cost is $28/month or $336/year. You can  choose the amount of time that works for you. This is an excellent project for classrooms, businesses and groups to fundraise together and sponsor a Good Food Box for a year. The best part is that this is you helping those in your own community! Donation receipts are issued in January and will be mailed to you.

Please also take time to stop by the Dawson Creek Co-op and thank them for their generous contribution to this program and pick up some groceries. We could not do this with out them.  Our community would not be the same with out the help of  community minded businesses  like the Dawson Creek Co-op.

Donations can be made by cash, cheque, debit/credit, or e-transfer (accounts@networksdc.ca).  Cheques should be made payable to Networks Ministries. Please indicate on cheques and e-transfers that your donation is to go towards the Good Food Box Program so it is appropriately designated to this fund.
