FRESH PRODUCE BOX


The Fresh Produce Box program is available to everyone! Order your weekly Fresh Produce Box right here through ouronline order form.

Every Friday morning, we go down to the Ontario Food Terminal and purchase an assortment of fresh fruits and vegetables directly from suppliers at a low cost. Our Fresh Produce Boxes are assembled and distributed by a fantastic team of volunteers, and the freshness and savings are passed along to you!

Fresh Produce Boxes are available for pickup every Friday. Place your $15 or $25 order during the week, making sure to select the pickup location of your choice. Orders must be placed prior to 4pm on Thursday for pickup on Friday of the same week.

If you are a food bank member, you can enter your membership number on the order form and receive your box for $10 for a small box, and $15 for a large box. For all other customers, $3 of your purchase price is a direct donation to the food bank at Eden Food for Change! Additionally, if the donation portion of your Fresh Produce Box purchases exceeds $20 for the year, you will receive a tax receipt for your donation amount.

When you pick-up your order please bring cash to pay and bags or boxes to take home your healthy, affordable, fresh produce.
