Community Food Programs

We recognize the importance of having access to quality food at affordable prices. Currenly, Sunalta has two food programs. We work with two community partners to make this happen, Fresh Routes and The Good Food Box.

A mobile grocery store that brings healthy, fresh, and affordable food into neighbourhoods facing barriers - allowing choice, maintaining dignity and building community.

Fresh Routes is a not-for-profit social enterprise that is focussed on creating new, innovative ways of providing healthy and affordable food to as many Canadians as possible - especially those who need it most. Their mission is to ensure that everyone has access to affordable, nutritious food and is informed to make healthy decisions and live a healthy life.

The Good Food Box

Monthly home delivery of bountiful, quality and affordable food boxes.

The Good Food Box sources its fresh produce from a variety of wholesalers. The food that is in the boxes depends on what is in season and available. The GFB program tries to work with local growers when possible, but for the most part, it is the same product that you would find in any major grocery store. The program runs through collective bulk buying, and the participants pool their money to buy directly from wholesalers with the help of Communiyt Kitchens to organize the ordering, packaging and delivery of boxes.

To ensure the program is sustainable and affordable, the GFB is open to everyone. Communiyt Kitchens does rely on donations, grant funding and volunteers to help with the overhead costs to ensure that the program is affordable and accessible. The mission of the Good Food Box is to make top-quality, fresh fruits and vegetable available in a way that does not stigmatize people, fosters community development, and promotes healthy eating.

Contact Kellie Nixon for more information and to order you box for delivery.
