Affordable, Local, Fruits & Veggies

The SU Campus Food Bank is now an official depot for the Good Food Box program and our services are open to the campus community!

The Good Food Box program is run through the Community Kitchen Program of Calgary and aims to provide community members with greater access to affordable, nutritious and sustainable fresh fruits and vegetables. The program purchases produce directly from local farmers and wholesalers. The program is run by volunteers that pack the boxes full of fruits and vegetables to be delivered to depots across the city.

What do they do?

They purchase fresh produce directly from local farms and wholesale clubs in bulk. After it is dropped off at their warehouse, their volunteers sort the food into good food boxes (maximum food for price), which are then delivered to depots to be handed out to clients.

What does a depot do?

A depot is responsible for collecting orders from the clients/community, receiving payment, and making sure someone is on location to receive the boxes on the day of delivery and to distribute the boxes back into the community.
