GOOD FOOD BOX UPDATE
Next order deadline is coming up November 18th for delivery on November 28th. The Good Food Box program is run by Calgary's Community Kitchen Program and operates by buying fresh top quality produce directly from farmers and from wholesale clubs. The food is bought in bulk and dropped off at the warehouse. The boxes contain the maximum produce possible in them for the price. A small box is 20-25 pounds for $20; a medium box is 30-35 pounds for $25; a large box is 40-45 pounds for $30. Boxes must be ordered and paid for by the 'order by' date. The MDLCA will be unable to order any boxes that are not paid for by the 'order by' date. Orders can be made by email to email@example.com or in person at the Hall during office hours and payment can be made at the Hall during office hours.
