A community program popular in municipalities and counties across the province can also be found in Drumheller.

The Good Food Box program is held monthly. For a set price, members of the program can purchase a small or large box of fresh fruits and vegetables.

"We have 103 people registered in the Good Food Box program at the moment," explained April Harrison, FCSS Coordinator for the Town of Drumheller. "This program is open to absolutely everyone. It's a community program for everyone. There are no restrictions based on income or age or anything like that."

A small Good Food Box suitable for single people costs $10, while a large Good Food Box geared towards families costs $20. Harrison pointed out that the program is a non-profit and said that all the money that comes in goes out in the form of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Harrison explained that the organization is aware that sometimes you just can't think of what to cook with the fruits and vegetables.

"The dietician in town is involved in the program too and each month there's a newsletter that's produced that gives updates and, on the back, there's always recipes based on the contents of the food box. They're really great, they're healthy. And, sometimes it's a new idea, something you haven't tried before, that might be fun for the family."

Finally, Harrison wanted to thank the volunteers that organize and supervise the monthly Good Food Box.

"This program couldn't run without a great team of volunteers that contribute in so many different ways throughout the month. And also, the Church of the Nazarene hosts us every month so we're thankful for that."

Anyone interested in helping out can contact Harrison at 403 823-1315, or see the town's website for more information.
