LUSH Valley's Food Share Program

Community Good Food Boxes

May 24, 2021 | Ag & Food | 0 comments

LUSH Valley’s Food Share Program is excited to announce that we are launching two new streams in our Good Food Box program for 2021!

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. In addition to our existing no-cost program, we now have two new options available: Our Subsidized and Community 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.

Cost (covers the cost of food in your Box + a proportion of program operating costs):
Regular size Good Food Box (suggested 1-2 people): $30.00
Large size Good Food Box (suggested 3-4 people): $40.00
X-Large size Good Food Box (suggested 5+ people): $50.00

Subsidized Good Food Box:

Our Subsidized Boxes (starting at $10.00/order) are available for households experiencing financial barriers to meeting their food needs. If you are interested in this program or if you would like to get on the waitlist for a No-Cost Box please apply here.

Cost (60% off the value of food in a Box + excludes program operating costs):
Regular size Good Food Box (suggested 1-2 people): $10.00
Large size Good Food Box (suggested 3-4 people): $14.00
X-Large size Good Food Box (suggested 5+ people): $18.00
