I know it can feel a bit like Soviet Russia now, what with all the shortages and lineups. So, do I have exciting news for you. There is an organization that will deliver food to your door, for cheap, with no rationing or lineups—and it’s not owned by a billionaire. It’s the Good Food Box program run by FoodShare.
The Good Food Box delivers fresh produce once a week to homes around Toronto. (Weston’s delivery date is Thursday). They have a range of options, from $15 (small) to $38 (organic), but to my eye, the sweet spot is the large produce box ($22) with a loaf of bread ($5).
FoodShare also offers meat boxes—alas, not an option for us. Stupid vegetarians.
FoodShare is waiving the usual small delivery fee until April to respond to COVID. They aren’t making a lot of money on their deliveries, though, so they ask you to consider buying a loaf of bread or some meat to help them out.
