Organic Food Pick Up at the Boys and Girls Club

Foodshare Toronto is Canada’s largest community food security organization, recognized as an important innovator of effective programs that have been reproduced all across Canada. It is a not-for-profit organization helping families have access to healthy fresh produce, directly from the Ontario Food Terminal.

Part of FoodShare’s programming is The Good Food Box. The Good Food Box runs like a large buying club with centralized buying and co-ordination. On a weekly OR biweekly basis individuals place orders for boxes with volunteer co-ordinators in their neighborhood and receive a box brimming with fresh, tasty produce.

The Boys and Girls Junction Triangle Clubhouse (1379 Bloor Street West, just east of Symington) is now a pick up location for fresh, local and organic produce. If you would like to sign up for a Good Food Box, please contact Tony Palermo at

Baskets will be delivered every Thursday and orders will be due the week before on the Wednesday.

For example: Delivery Thursday, June 28, order due Wednesday, June 20

Delivery Thursday, July 5 order due Wednesday June 27
