The Good Food Box is a large grocery bag of fresh fruit, vegetables and eggs, available every other week. We include 50% or more local food in each order to support our Comox Valley Farmers and Growers. No-cost boxes are primarily available through our partner organizations, including:
- BC Housing Washington Apartments
- Maple Pool Campground
- Comox Valley Family Services
- The Wachiay Friendship Centre
- Cumberland Food Share
- The Head Injury Society
Our partnerships are diverse, ranging from organizations supporting their clients in registering for services through LUSH Valley, to partners operating as ‘hubs’ to distribute hot meals and/or no-cost Good Food Boxes to their clients, to organizations teaming up with LUSH to provide the people-power, food and transportation to bring these services to the wider community.
In addition to our existing no-cost program, we have two new options available for 2021: our Community Good Food Boxes and subsidized Good Food Boxes.
COMMUNITY GOOD FOOD BOX:
Community Boxes can be ordered by everyone through our online Good Food Box Store. This is a great way to get local food at a great value while also supporting LUSH Valley and local farms. You can support others in our community by purchasing an additional “Gift Box” with your order that will go to someone who wouldn’t be able to afford it otherwise.
