Good Food Box at the TGCA

To our valued Good Food Box program participants, Our Good Food Box deliveries from Community Kitchen can’t be guaranteed to be at the centre any earlier than 2 pm on pickup days, so we’ve made the following adjustments to our pickup times. Beginning May 19, the pickup time for the TGCA Good Food Box depot will be 2 pm – 6 pm. Please note for your future orders. Thanks very much for your patience and please let me know if you have any questions. Vanessa - 403-674-6840

Regarding rising food costs and inflation, Community Kitchen Calgary is doing all they can to keep pricing of the Good Food Boxes constant and affordable and they will remain the same due to their hard work and commitment to providing nutritious food to all. Please click here to learn more. 

The Good Food Box makes top-quality, fresh food available in a way that does not stigmatize people, fosters community development and promotes healthy eating.

The program is coordinated by the Community Kitchen Program of Calgary. 

Good Food Boxes include produce only, and are chock-full of seasonal vegetables and fruits, so you can expect quite a different box in January than you might get in June.  

You may want to make a meal plan ahead of receiving your Good Food box. It’s an exceptional value but it is a lot of perishable food. To give you an idea of how much food you’ll get, the “large box” usually comes in a banana box and often also includes an additional bag of potatoes. (Pictured on this page)

Please note: Community Kitchen Program of Calgary doesn’t accommodate special orders and the content of the boxes is not optional. Please keep this in mind if you have allergies, as your box may contain a wide variety of produce.

The TGCA takes payments online for the The Good Food Box program. You can purchase your box using VISA or Mastercard or you can send the TGCA an e-transfer (more info on e-transfers at the bottom of the page)

The May 10 deadline has now passed. If you ordered on or before May 10, please come to the centre to pickup your box on May 19.

You can now order the Good Food Boxes for the June 16 pickup until June 7, 3:30 pm. 

Pickup time is now 2 pm – 6pm. You will receive an order confirmation to your chosen email. Please have this order number with you to pick up your order. 

Pick up procedure: The Good Food Boxes will be available in the Old Lobby (orange star on map of TGCA site at bottom of this page) on designated pick up days. It’s located north of the entrance on the east side of the building-please note the signage above the door. Tell the attendant what your order number is and they will return with your box.

If you can’t make it to the designated pickup time, please contact Vanessa, v.gillard@tgcalcalgary.com and arrange a time for the following Friday to the pickup date. Please note that all boxes that aren’t picked up will be utilized by the TGCA.
