GOOD FOOD AT YOUR DOORSTEP
A COVID-19 Emergency Fresh Food Delivery Service
Good Food at Your Doorstep, a joint initiative by the Ottawa Good Food Box, MarketMobile, and the Rideau-Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre supports Ottawa households who currently have limited financial and physical access to affordable fresh fruits and vegetables. This new initiative will provide a weekly home delivery service to low-income and vulnerable community members during the COVID-19 health crisis.
We are committed to serving our community
The mission of Good Food at Your Doorstep is to support Ottawa households who currently have limited financial and physical access to affordable fresh fruits and vegetables. The COVID-19 health crisis is creating a range of unique and individual impacts for all Ottawa residents. In the coming months food insecurity, due to social isolation and loss of income, will mean more people will be seeking ways to procure fresh food that is both affordable and can be delivered to their home. As people are encouraged to stay home and some are under more financial stress, finding a solution that enables the delivery of fresh and healthy foods directly to individuals will remain of utmost importance.
Good Food at Your Doorstep offers for purchase boxes of fresh fruits and vegetables that are delivered weekly to your doorstep free of charge.
Customers pre-order boxes of fresh fruits and vegetables online with a debit or credit card through the Good Food at Your Doorstep website. One format of produce bundle is available for purchase, in the form of $20 boxes, and include a varied selection of fresh fruits and vegetables. Each $20 produce box contains enough produce for a family of 2-3 people for one week, depending on how much produce your family eats weekly. There will be no additional delivery fee to the customer for home delivery. This emergency service will only offer no-contact deliveries and will follow the COVID-19 guidelines given by Ottawa Public Health for safe food handling and home deliveries.
