Impact Statement The Good Food Box is an alternative fruit and vegetable distribution system and community program operated by the Fernwood NRG.

Boxes are available for pick-up or delivery every Wednesday.

You can choose the time that best suits your schedule. Fernwood NRG will provide you with a map and list of the deliveries. This role does require some lifting (15 lbs.) to place the boxes in your vehicle and take them out.
